''I like the mystery of race,'' Ensemble Theatre Artistic Director Eileen Morris says. ''Race is a mystery. In this play, Mamet leaves us with a lot of questions about race and class and gender. He reminds us that there's still work to be done, work that sometimes we don't want to acknowledge.'' One note, this is Mamet so audiences should expect a mature dose of adult language and profanity with the profundity.
