We Are Proud to Present

Arts Bank Theater

Full Title: “We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915”

Written by Jackie Sibblies Drury
Directed by Matt Pfeiffer

A rehearsal room descends from collaborative to absurd as a group of idealistic actors – three black and three white – come together to tell the little-known story of a centuries-old conflict in South West Africa. As the troupe tries to recreate the extinction of the Herero tribe at the hands of their German colonizers, their own stories, subjectivities and ingrained prejudices rise to the surface. Tensions mount as the actors discover the limits of their good intentions.

Matt Pfeiffer, a seasoned Philadelphia actor, director and five-time Barrymore nominee and recipient of the F. Otto Haas Award for an Emerging Theatre Artist, returns to the Brind School to direct “We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915.”
