RaceClarke Peters (best known for his role as Detective Lester Freamon in hit US TV series The Wire) makes his Hampstead Theatre debut in Race, a detective story written by Pulitzer Prize winning author David Mamet. Directed by Olivier award winner Terry Johnson, who returns to the north London theatre following the sell-out hit Old Money last season, Race tells the story of two lawyers, one black and one white, who must uncover the truth surrounding a rape case, in which the accused is white and the accuser is black. When David Mamet's drama premiered on Broadway in December 2009, directed by its author, the New York Times noted the 'tension of its subject' and 'corkscrew plot twists' while the LA Times described it as "one of the most anticipated productions on Broadway this year". Though best known for his role in The Wire, Clarke Peters is a seasoned theatre actor who wrote and starred in the musical Five Guys Named Moe in 1990.

 

About Hampstead Theatre

The Hampstead Theatre has existed in various forms since 1959, when it opened in a Scout Hall and its opening season in 1959 included two new plays by Harold Pinter, The Room and The Dumb Waiter. In 1962 the company moved to a portacabin in Swiss Cottage where it remained for nearly 40 years. More about Hampstead Theatre
