Rasheeda Speaking by Joel Drake Johnson
Directed by Ty Hallmark
March 6-22, 2020

This tense workplace thriller examines the realities of so-called "post-racial" {America} when 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. Rasheeda Speaking is an incisive and shocking dark comedy that keeps you in its claustrophobic grip until the final moment.
