Ethics and the Theater- Race, by David Mamet

Race, by David Mamet

Henry and Jack have a problem. The two lawyers – one black, the other white – must defend Charles, a wealthy white man, who has been accused of raping a young black woman. From their point of view, the case is a lose-lose proposition: Whether they get their client off or not, they look bad. The reason, of course, is race. Race, together with the associated differences in privilege and opportunity and the guilt and shame these differences instill, shapes not only the choices Henry and Jack make about their defense of Charles but also the lawyers’ relationships with each other, with their client, and with their young black female associate. Will race, in the end, trump questions of innocence, victimhood, and justice?

Richard E. Van Deusen directs. After the reading participate in a discussion of the ethical issues of the play led by Dr. Anne Klaeysen.
