Now Playing

THE SUBMISSION openstage etc.

By Jeff Talbott Directed By Tomily Z. Munir

Winner of the 2011 Laurents/Hatcher Award for best new play.

A Colorado Premier!

Remember the conversation you're not supposed to have at dinner? We're having it in this unabashed and unapologetic comedy.

So that his play might stand a chance at one of America's most prestigous theatre fetivals, young, gay, white playwright Danny hires young, straight, black actress Emilie to pose as the author of his play about an African American family trying to get out of the projects. The results are both catastrophic and humorous as this sensational new play exposes the underbelly of prejudice in modern America. The Submission is a comedy with teeth. (Contains adult language.)

"...grabs the audience and doesn't let go for 100 minutes." -Hollywood Soapbox

"Fearless, whip-smart, and hyperarticulate, Talbott's incendiary political comedy-drama asks hard questions about our supposedly post-racial world." -Backstage
