Described by NPR as "a controversial but enlightening...play that takes on the issue of racial stereotypes in an unconventional way," "N*W*C: The Race Show" tells the powerful real-life stories of three young men from different ethnic backgrounds. Beloiters will have the chance to see a performance of this play at 8 p.m. tonight (Monday, Sept. 27) at Central Christian Church, located at 2460 Milwaukee Road in Beloit.
Using drama, hip-hop, slam poetry, and stand-up comedy to deconstruct the notion of race in America, the show’s message comes through loud and clear: “There’s only one race, the human race.”
This show was the winner of the 2003 “Best Play” from the American Readers Theater Association and has touched audiences across the country.
Transportation from campus to the performance will be available starting at 6:45 p.m.; vans will pick up at the corner of College and Clary streets, in front of the C-Haus.
