On October 12, 1995, Jonny Gammage, cousin of former Pittsburgh Steeler Ray Seals, was stopped by Lieutenant Milton Mulholland of the Brentwood, Pa., police department. Seven minutes later, Gammage was dead. The bare facts, as troubling as they may be, fail to capture the often unaddressed problems of race relations in the Pittsburgh region. This original docudrama, coproduced by Pitt Rep and Pittsburgh Playwrights Theatre Company, goes beyond issues of Black and White in order to expose the suppressed emotions that continue to affect race relations in our area today.
Produced in conjunction with Pittsburgh Playwrights Theatre Company with additional performances at the August Wilson Center, March 2-4.
Each production is followed by a talkback with a member of the community portrayed in the play along with a member of the production team. Schedule of talkback hosts.
