Three Bone Theatre presents The Submission by Jeff Talbot, directed by Sidney Horton. Shaleeha G'ntamobi's stirring new play about an alcoholic black mother and her card shark son trying to get out of the projects has just been accepted into the nation's preeminent theater festival. Trouble is, Shaleeha G'ntamobi doesn't exist, except in the imagination of wannabe-playwright Danny Larsen, who created her as a kind of affirmative-action nom-de-plume. But a nom-de-guerre may prove more useful as the lies pile up, shaky alliances are forged, and everyone dear to Danny must decide whether or not to run for cover as the whole thing threatens to blow up in his lily white face. The Submission will run August 17-19 & August 24-26.
