There’s more to history than what’s in the books. We Are Proud to Present a Presentation… tells the story of what happens when a group of actors explore the long-forgotten––or possibly never remembered––history of German colonization of Namibia and its devastating effects. This gut-wrenching, intelligent, often funny—until it’s not—play asks us, what happens when we only have one side of the story?

*Recommended for ages 14+
