A multiracial cast of six idealistic actors sets out to improvise a story about the first colonial genocide of the 20th Century in Africa, but get lost in the reality of their undertaking. The unusual presentation, humor and inevitable discomfort of this provocative new play gripped theatre hubs like New York, Chicago, London, Washington D.C. and Seattle with its unique theatrical investigation of prejudice, power and perspective. 
NOTE: *This play uses irony, satire, racially charged language and symbolic violence to examine power, racism and perspective. We recommend this play for patrons 16 and older.*

POST SHOW DISCUSSION - This production is intended to engender conversation. Please join us for facilitated conversation about We Are Proud to Present; the discussion will be interpreted. The facilitator for the discussion following this performance will be Jo Ann Hardesty, President, NAACP Portland.

RUN TIME: 105 minutes. No intermission.

[No spoken dialogue. Background sound: actors drumming on wooden boxes and floor, making rhythmic sounds (eee, haa haa, eee, haa)]
