The Submission

Closed October 22, 2011

Walter Bobbie directs four of today's hottest young stars - Jonathan Groff, Will Rogers, Eddie Kaye Thomas, and Rutina Wesley - in this funny and furiously intelligent new play.

Why See The Submission?

Shaleeha G’ntamobi’s stirring new play about an alcoholic black mother and her card sharp son trying to get out of the projects has just been accepted into the nation’s preeminent theater festival.

Trouble is, Shaleeha G’ntamobi doesn’t exist, except in the imagination of wannabe-playwright Danny Larsen, who created her as a kind of affirmative-action nom-de-plume.

But a nom-de-guerre may prove more useful as the lies pile up, shaky alliances are forged, and everyone dear to Danny must decide whether or not to run for cover as the whole thing threatens to blow up in his lily white face.
