    The Submission by Jeff Talbott

    Winner- Outer Critics Circle John Gassner Award for Best New American Play

    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 SUBMISSION is a raw, unsentimental play about race and gender that exposes the quiet prejudice and intolerance among even our most progressive thinkers. It is both uncomfortable and impossible to not watch." -Associated Press

    Danny 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 play festival.  Problem is:  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.  

    *The Submission contains strong adult themes and language and is not recommended for those under 18

    Three Bone Theatre is supported, in part, with funding from ASC, and the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources
