Weathervane stages provocative 'Race'

Published:

Weathervane Playhouse's 79th season continues with "Race," a provocative tale of sex, guilt and bold accusations, directed by Jennifer Kay Jeter.

Presented live on stage through Feb. 16, the production of Race will also include "talk-back" sessions with the play's director and its four actors immediately following all three Sunday matinees.

In "Race," racial and ethical lines are crossed and re-crossed. Two lawyers find themselves defending a wealthy white businessman accused with raping a black woman. When a new legal assistant gets involved in the case, the opinions that boil beneath suddenly explode to the surface.

Due to its adult themes and strong language, Race is not recommended for children.

Performance days and times are Thursdays at 7:30 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $21 each; $19 tickets for seniors are available for Thursday and Sunday performances. Tickets for children (ages 17 or younger) and college students are $5 each at all performances. Additional discounts for groups of 10 or larger are also available.

The Weathervane Playhouse box office is open Mondays between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., Tuesdays through Fridays between 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. and is also open beginning one hour before each performance. For tickets, visit or call the Weathervane Box Office at 330-836-2626 during Box Office hours or connect online to www.weathervaneplayhouse.com.
