Rave reviews…

​"Masterful, innovative theatre." 
- Cranston Herald / Warwick Beacon

​"Job interviews get dramatic in THE RACE." 
- The Providence Journal

​"An uncomfortable, cautionary tale" 
- EDGE Providence

Two job-seekers from vastly different backgrounds vie for the same position in a large, faceless corporation. Each reveals uncomfortable truths from their past while dodging landmines from their competition, and dealing with an increasingly demanding disembodied interviewer. Neither candidate’s future is certain, as the audience becomes an integral part of the selection process.

THE RACE is a live theater event designed to be performed in the Zoomscape. To find out more about bringing it to your organization or community, please email Beth Hellman or use the contact form below.
