Critics’ Reviews

"A high-voltage melodrama that is unafraid to raise painful questions while dispensing prickly ideas and provocative dialogue amid steady suspense. The play is full of wry jokes, epigrammatic jolts, and acrid, even cheeky provocations, which, depending on the extent of your guilt feelings, can be taken as deserved flagellation or perfervid overstatement."

Review by John Simon from Bloomberg News

"The issues it raises, particularly on the ethnic varieties of shame and the universal nature of guilt, should offer ample nutrition for many a post-theater dinner conversation."

Review by Ben Brantley from The New York Times

"Briskly entertaining. It is indeed a world full of misunderstandings, and Race offers an absorbing glimpse."
