When six actors begin rehearsing a play about a little-known episode of African genocide, resentments and prejudices soon surface over the interpretation of the script. Jackie Sibblies Drury’s “We are Proud to Present…” at PlayMakers Repertory Company is alternately humorous and daring in an intense 90 minutes.
7:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday; 2 p.m. Sunday (through 3/13). $15-$54. 919-962-7529 or playmakersrep.org.
