The Submission is a play about the nature of identity, and the definition of who a person is in terms of how they see themselves and how they are seen by other people. After years of rejection letters, frustrated playwright Danny Larsen has written a complex new drama about an African American family trying to get out of the Projects, and it has just been selected for the nation’s preeminent Humana festival. Problem is: Danny, a young white gay male, submitted the work under the pen name ‘Shaleeha G’ntamobi’ in the hopes of increasing his chances for success. To cover his deception, Danny hires Emilie, an African American actress, to impersonate the nome de plume. What starts as a terrible idea becomes more and more terrible as Danny drags Emilie, his boyfriend, and his best friend down a long and dirty path of lies, revelation, and betrayal. A fiercely controversial and intelligent new comic drama about the words we use to describe each other, The Submission addresses the things we’ll do to get what we want.
