THE ARS NOVA PRODUCTION OF
UNDERGROUND RAILROAD GAME

by Jennifer Kidwell and Scott R. Sheppard with Lightning Rod Special
Directed by Taibi Magar
Produced by Octopus Theatricals


Critics’ Pick
“A lacerating comedy on race…in-all-ways sensational.”—Ben Brantley, New York Times
 
Critics’ Pick
“Outrageously funny! Strikingly rendered by bold, smart performances.”—Adam Feldman, Time Out New York
 
“Explosive! Fearlessly, ferociously uninhibited . . . the show’s most subversive quality is also quintessentially American: it’s wildly entertaining.”—Elisabeth Vincentelli, The New Yorker
 
Good morning, America! Welcome to Hanover Middle School, where a pair of teachers are getting down and dirty with today’s lesson. The nimble duo goes round after round on the mat of our nation’s history, tackling race, sex, and power in this R-rated, kaleidoscopic, and fearless comedy. Lauded around the world and in the New York Times as “one of the best new American plays of the last 25 years,” Underground Railroad Game welcomes back Jennifer Kidwell, last seen in SummerScape 2016’s Demolishing Everything with Amazing Speed.

Underground Railroad Game contains sexually explicit material, strong language, and mature themes and is recommended for adventurous audiences ages 18 and up.

Presented as part of the Hannah Arendt Center’s annual conference, Racism and Antisemitism.
