Undermain Theatre presents We Are Proud to Present a Presentation...
Undermain Theatre debuts its Archives Undermain series with a video from their 2014 production of We Are Proud to Present a Presentation... by Jackie Sibblies Drury.
A troupe of young actors gears up to portray the extermination of the Herero tribe of Namibia. They’re passionate. Energetic. They’ve got piles of research. But what do they really know about being black Africans under German colonization? Is it possible to identify with the victims of history? What about the villains? There is danger in the game they’re playing, and fraught racial histories threaten to tear the troupe apart. As the actors dive further in, this inventive play becomes a hilarious and head-spinning nightmare of identity.
