‘Race’ looks back in anger at New Rep
You know a play by David Mamet titled “Race” isn’t going to pull any punches. But this law-office drama, which opened on Broadway in 2009, puts more than racial prejudice on trial. It goes after sexism and legal ethics as well. The New Repertory Theatre production doesn’t close all of Mamet’s loopholes, but director Robert Walsh and the four cast members do make a powerful case to the audience.
