Three Bone Theatre presents the Charlotte premiere of “The Submission” by Jeff Talbott, a fiercely funny and intelligent new comic drama about the words we use to describe each other — and the things we’ll do to get what we want. The play centers around Danny who has written a complex new drama about an African-American family trying to get out of the projects, and it has just been selected for the nation’s preeminent theatre festival. The problem is that Danny, a young white playwright, submitted the work under a pen name in the hope of increasing its chances for production. 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 Emilie, his boyfriend, and his best friend down a long and dirty path of truth, lies, revelation and betrayal. Come and find out what will happen in this epic ethnic discrepancy! There will be three performances of this show: Thursday (8/24), Friday (8/25) and Saturday (8/26) all starting at 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased here: http://www.carolinatix.org/events/detail/the-submission-by-jeff-talbott.
