Jubilee Theatre is ecstatic to present Dennis McIntyre’s Split Second, on stage May 24 – June 23, 2019. This taut, incendiary drama explores the story of a respected African-American police officer who arrests a white man on suspicion of attempted car theft. The suspect taunts the officer with racist insults and verbal attacks until, in the grip of uncontrollable rage, the officer loses his cool and guns down his handcuffed antagonist. There are no witnesses; the cop can probably get away with it. Does he turn himself in or does he cover himself? The play focuses on the officer’s moral dilemma: Should he tell the truth about the slaying or should he let the matter slide away as self-defense? Split Second is directed by Benard Cummings who describes the production as a mesh of the haunting chapter “in America’s past (Vietnam), institutionalized racism, and police brutality in a provocative and intriguing way. “What’s past is prologue” is, perhaps, most evident”. The drama stars six actors, Reginald Wilcox, II (Val Johnson), Chris Sanders (Alea Johnson), Kenne Earl (Charlie), Alonzo Waller (Rusty), Jon Garrard (Willis) and Eric Berg (Parker). The remaining production team includes set and costume design by Amy Poe, lighting design by Lindsay Silva, sound design by David Lanza, scenic design by Jennye James and stage management by Aaron Butler.
