The Rep: We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia

We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, from the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1885-1915 by Jackie Sibblies Drury

A group of actors – three black and three white – gather to recreate the little-known story of the original genocide of the 20th century, the extinction of the Herero tribe at the hands of their German colonizers. Along the way, the actors test the limits of empathy as their own assumptions and prejudices affect their theatrical process until eventually the full force of a horrific past crashes into the good intentions of the present. The Washington Post called it “A genuine thunderbolt … devastatingly funny … dangerous and primal and weird.”

The Rep: Smart People

When: 
Sunday, April 28, 2019 - 2:00pm
Sunday, April 28, 2019 - 7:30pm

It is the eve of Obama’s first election. Four of Harvard University’s brightest – a surgeon, an actress, a psychologist and a neuro-psychiatrist – are all interested in different aspects of the brain, particularly how it responds to race. But like all smart people, they are also searching for love, success and identity in their own lives. Lydia Diamond brings these characters together in a sharp, witty play about social and sexual politics.

The Rep includes three plays presented in rotating performance over a two-week period. The plays include 

Smart People by Lydia R. Diamond, How I Learned to Drive by Paula Vogel, and We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, from the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1885-1915 by Jackie Sibblies Drury.
