  Rasheeda Speaking at Joe's Movement Emporium

Rasheeda Speaking

Joe's Movement Emporium
3309 Bunker Hill Road Mount Rainier

Ally Theatre Company's take on the incendiary play by Joel Drake Johnson takes another look at the ever-topical questions about the prevalence of ingrained racism in America. This tense workplace thriller examines the realities of a so-called "post-racial" workplace where two co-workers - one black, the other white - are driven apart by the machinations of their boss. A chilling power struggle ensues that spins wildly out of control. This incisive and shocking dark comedy will keep you in its claustrophobic grip until the final moment.

"...Regardless of how you call it, Rasheeda Speaking is a thought-provoking but incendiary run for safety where no one really wins the game."

"...Interestingly, today it's not that far a stretch to consider that the toxic fumes that Jaclyn chokes on, that she attributes to particles emanating from the copy machine, could actually come from any number of sources. With military gas masks returning in the news and shelves running low on mesh face masks, playwright Joel Drake Johnson couldn't have guessed how real life would catch up to his premise. Whether the toxins are bonafide physical particles or deeply ingrained racial and cultural misperceptions, Johnson's tale will make you ponder how to stay physically and emotionally sane and healthy considering what's out there and close by."
