The term “post-racial” is a surprisingly popular one these days, and one that also seems to be pretty undefined. But that doesn’t mean people aren’t talking about race. From now until mid-December the Kitchen Dog Theater, 3120 McKinney Ave, will perform Race, one of the newest plays by David Mamet, of Glengarry Glen Ross and Alec Baldwin’s brass balls fame. Mamet’s own description of the play is that it’s about race and the lies people tell themselves about it. The original Broadway production starred Kerry Washington, David Alan Greer, James Spader (later replaced by Eddie Izzard) and Richard Thomas. The show premieres at 8 p.m. Friday, and tickets cost $30 for opening night. After that prices fluctuate from $12 to $25 depending on the day of the week, and as always at Kitchen Dog, the first 25 people to arrive on Wednesdays and Thursdays pay whatever they can or want.

Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: Nov. 15. Continues through Dec. 15, 2013
