N*W*C*, short for N*GGER WETB*CK CH*NK, is a 90-minute original work for the stage produced by L.A.-based Speak Theater Arts that co-writers Miles Gregley, Rafael Agustin, and Allan Axibal say “traces the origins and evolution of three derogatory terms that shaped our lives and took the place of a genuine understanding of our distinct cultures.” N*W*C* mixes comedy with the real-life stories of three young men from different ethnic backgrounds to deconstruct the notion of race in America. Drama, hip-hop, slam poetry, and stand-up comedy are intermingled to communicate the show’s overall message: “There’s only one race: the human race.” N*W*C* won the 2003 award for “Best Play” from the American Readers Theater Association, as well as the Audience Prize and four other major awards.

A moderated Post-performance Q&A with members of the cast will occur after each 8 PM performance.
