SYNOPSIS: This dynamic series of short monologues from seven people who have participated in or witnessed a botched robbery allows audiences to piece together what actually happened, but what's more interesting is the insight we get into the minds of the witnesses. None of the accounts match, and each one betrays the witness's prejudices. An exploration of perception, stereotypes, and prejudice, it showcases an actor's ability to play multiple characters and ethnicities.

"...provocative...relevant...eye-opening...challenging in a way that made it a useful learning tool. Witnesses is an excellent play to raise consciousness in the area of bigotry and prejudice."
