THE SUBMISSION - Nearly Naked Theatre - June 29-July 14, 2018


by Jeff Talbott

Directed by Damon Dering

HOMOPHOBIA, COFFEE SHOPS & RACISM ON STAGE IT’S A DRAMEDY, IN AMERICA... IT’S A TUESDAY.

Nearly Naked Theatre presents a timely and darkly um... let’s go with “droll” limited engagement. Danny has written a complex new drama about an African-American family trying to get out of the projects, and it’s just been selected for the nation's preeminent play festival. Problem is: the fact that Danny submitted the work under a pen name in the hope of increasing its chances of production. That... and his lily white face. So he hires Emilie, a black actress, to stand in for him as author. What starts as a terrible idea becomes more and more terrible as Danny drags his boyfriend and his best friend down a long and dirty path of truth, lies, revelation and betrayal. A fiercely funny new comic-drama about the words we use to describe each other-- and the things we'll do to get what.
