I'm not doing a German accent
You aren't doing an African accent
We aren't doing accents

A group of actors gather to tell the little-known story of the first genocide of the twentieth century. As the full force of a horrific past crashes into the good intentions of the present, what seemed a far-away place and time is suddenly all too close to home. Just whose story are they telling?

Award-winning playwright Jackie Sibblies Drury collides the political with the personal in a play that is irreverently funny and seriously brave.

We Are Proud To Present . . . received its European premiere at the Bush Theatre, London, on 28 February 2014.

Review:

An inventive new play . . . incendiary results . . . impressively navigates the tricky boundaries that separate art and life * New York Times * [a] dark, funny, and unruly play * Washington Post * a rising playwright * Washington Post * Drury's excoriating drama really is theatre in the raw, which by the end takes your breath away * Metro (London) * extraordinary * Time Out New York * ingenious * The Guardian * a very promising new play * Chicago Tribune * a smart piece of self-reflexive theatre, constantly questioning the appropriation of characters, narratives and cultures that are commonplace elements of `storytelling' . . . a bold and distinguished work, particularly in its suggestion that theatre itself can be an act of colonialism . . . At its best Drury's confrontational play depicts theatre (imperfectly, vitally) checking its privileges. * Time Out London *
