The full title of Jackie Sibblies Drury’s play may be difficult to remember — “We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as South West Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915” — but critics found the production hard to forget when it played at New York’s Soho Rep in 2012. The play, which has its area debut at Woolly Mammoth Theatre, examines latent prejudices through the story of six actors as they struggle to rehearse a play about a genocide.
