About the Program

DEFAMATION is a courtroom drama with a twist. When race, class, religion, and gender collide a conversation begins about the most important social issues of our day. Through deliberations and post-show discussions, the audience engages in civil discourse that stimulates critical dialogue and challenges preconceived notions.

THE CASE
An African American woman sues a wealthy Jewish real estate developer for defamation after she is accused of stealing a family heirloom.

THE TWIST 
You and the audience are the jury.
