When death row prisoner Darius McReele (Chris Butler, True Blood, 24) transforms into a charismatic front-runner in the Delaware senate race, the spin starts spinning out of control. Playwright Stephen Belber leads us to ask is he doing the right thing for the wrong reasons, or the wrong thing for the right reasons? Does it ultimately matter? Also starring Eric Stoltz (Pulp Fiction).

At the center of Cassandra Medley’s play is the controversial idea that higher concentrations of melanin in the genetic makeup of people of color make them mentally, physically, and spiritually superior. Based on the scientific studies of her now-deceased father, Kalima, a fledgling molecular scientist looking to come into her own, has a difficult time owning his flawed research. This play is part of L.A. Theatre Works’ Relativity Series of science-themed plays. Lead funding for the Relativity Series is provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, bridging science and the arts in the modern world.
