About this show

Shaleeha G'ntamobi's stirring new play about an alcoholic black mother and her card sharp 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 white playwright Danny, who created her as a kind of affirmative-action nom-de-plume. Winner of the 2012 Outer Critics Circle John Gassner Award and the 2011 Laurents/Hatcher Award, The New York Times calls The Submission "a perky tale of racial pride and prejudice in the theatre."
