Fisher Center and Hannah Arendt Center at Bard Present

THE ARS NOVA PRODUCTION OF

UNDERGROUND RAILROAD GAME

by Jennifer Kidwell and Scott R. Sheppard with Lightning Rod Special

Directed by Taibi Magar

Produced by Octopus Theatricals

Critics’ Pick

“A lacerating comedy on race…in-all-ways sensational.”—Ben Brantley, New York Times

Critics’ Pick

“Outrageously funny! Strikingly rendered by bold, smart performances.”—Adam Feldman, Time Out New York

“Explosive! Fearlessly, ferociously uninhibited . . . the show’s most subversive quality is also quintessentially American: it’s wildly entertaining.”—Elisabeth Vincentelli, The New Yorker

Good morning, America! Welcome to Hanover Middle School, where a pair of teachers are getting down and dirty with today’s lesson. The nimble duo goes round after round on the mat of our nation’s history, tackling race, sex, and power in this R-rated, kaleidoscopic, and fearless comedy. Lauded around the world and in the New York Times as "one of the best new American plays of the last 25 years."

Presented as part of the Hannah Arendt Center’s annual conference, Racism and Antisemitism.
