Rasheeda SpeakingRasheeda Speaking
Written by Joel Drake Johnson
Directed by Scott Grumling
Nov. 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, 26
Dec. 1, 2, 3

Runtime: 1hr45min (no intermission)

Blending awkward workplace comedy with intense racial tension, this workplace thriller examines the realities of so-called "post-racial" America when two middle aged female co-workers - one black, one white - are driven apart by the machinations of their boss. A chilling power struggle ensues that spins wildly out of control. An acidic depiction of race, power, and friendship, this dark comedy will keep you in its claustrophobic grip until its final moments. We are proud to present the Philadelphia Regional premiere of this critically acclaimed recent off-Broadway hit.

Learn about a special "Talkback" following the Nov. 19th performance with the director and special guests Phoebe Coles, Reverend David Brown and Lois Moses. Learn more about this talkback here.

Cast:

  • Tom Boland
  • Angie Henderson-Goode
  • Leah O'Hara
