The Ars Nova Production of Underground Railroad Game

Concert or Performance

30 Jan 2019 to 17 Feb 2019

All aboard for a wild ride, back to when rules were black and white. The history teachers at Hanover Middle School have an R-rated lesson in store. Take your seat. Today’s subject is race, with a little sex, history and power on the side. Let’s have fun with it. Let’s play a game. Yes, you are all invited to watch.

Underground Railroad Game is a darkly comedic take on how the post-colonial world has become jaundiced by its racially-charged back story. With repartee, acuity and nudity, creators and performers Jennifer Kidwell and Scott R. Sheppard interrogate the confusion of arguments and stereotypes that have arisen from the shadows of Western society.

The New York Times heralds it as one of the best, most influential American plays of the last 25 years. Join Malthouse Theatre on this wild ride, conducted by the original 2017 Obie Award-winning company, straight from the USA.

There is a shift-in-your-seat experience to be lived here. What you get from it will depend on how you play the game.
