Undermain Theatre is thrilled to bring our first streaming show of our 2020 season to Dallas audiences.  From our 2013/14 Season, an archival performance video of Undermain’s production of Jackie Sibblies Drury's controversial play which explores the German colonization and genocide of South West Africa. Please be advised that racial themes and harsh language are explored. The archival video of We Are Proud to Present a Presentation…by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Jackie Sibblies Drury will stream from September 16 –October 4, 2020.

A troupe of young actors gears up to portray the extermination of the Herero tribe of Namibia. They’re passionate. Energetic. They’ve got piles of research. But what do they really know about being black Africans under German colonization? Is it possible to identify with the victims of history? What about the villains? There is danger in the game they’re playing, and fraught racial histories threaten to tear the troupe apart. As the actors dive further in, this inventive play becomes a hilarious and head-spinning nightmare of identity.
