    A night of theater for whatever you can afford?

    It’s reality, Thursday night Jan. 20 at a “pay what you can” dress rehearsal performance of David Mamet’s Race at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre.

    That’s right you won’t need to fork over 50 bucks to see some live theater. And even better, whatever you do spend is going to a good cause.

    The special performance will help raise money for the Philadelphia-based organization Idea Coalition.

    Idea Coalition is an organization that helps bring together people in the Black and Jewish communities by creating various educational events, networking events and arts projects.

    Race is the new play from Pulitzer Prize-wining playwright and Tony-nominee David Mamet and directed by Scott Zigler. “Race, like sex, is a subject on which it is near impossible to tell the truth,” stated playwright Mamet.

    The play is about “two lawyers, one black and one white, who are offered the chance to defend a wealthy executive charged with a shocking crime against a young black woman. When a new legal assistant gets involved, emotions bubbling just beneath the surface explode!” according to the show sponsor Philadelphia Theatre Company
