The play is called “The Submission” and it deals with ownership of stories and how words and names that people use can affect others. It premiered at the Lucille Lortel Theatre on September 27.

The story revolves around a white, male playwright (played by Jonathan Groff) who writes a play and pretends that it is written by an African-American woman.
