“Are we just going to sit here and watch some white people fall in love all day?”

In a small rehearsal room, a diverse troupe of actors attempt to devise a performance about the first modern genocide – to chilling effect. Written by Yale alum and Windham Campbell winner Jackie Sibblies Drury, We Are Proud to Present… is an incendiary funny-until-it-isn’t play that premiered to universal acclaim and demands answers about the violence of erasure and the politics of performance. What histories and stories get told, and how do we tell them?
