    Humans Remain

    by Robin Rice
    • 110 Minutes
    • 2 Males, 5 Females; 1 African dancer (optional) (small roles are doubled).

    A full-length drama by Robin Rice, Humans Remain challenges our views on cultural bias, assimilation, values, and assumptions. A well-meaning “foreigner” attempts to rescue the White Cliff Kinfolk – a mixed-race society isolated from civilization in the hills of New Jersey for over 200 years. Love. Death. History. Magic. Nature. Belief. All of these are played out on the stage. All but one character are mixed race, mainly African-American. One character is specified as African-American. The others are as diverse as desired.

    Highly theatrical staging possible.
