Talk About Race

Image Picker for Section 0

Conceived, Written, and Directed by Hassan El-Amin

multiracial group of people, music notes

The REP proudly presents the world premiere of TALK ABOUT RACE, an original audio production conceived, written, and directed by REP company member Hassan El-Amin.  

This fast-moving, entertaining, and thought-provoking production takes an unflinching look at current racial relations in America.  TALK ABOUT RACE is guaranteed to provoke a full spectrum of emotions, from amusement to outrage, in an engaging mix of vignettes, comedy, little-known American history, rousing contemporary and historical oratory, and music – ALL ABOUT RACE.

TALK ABOUT RACE has been extended for FREE streaming April 13th - April 30th!

This production includes strong language including racial epithets as well as adult situations.  The views expressed in this play are not necessarily those of the REP or the University of Delaware.
