Tempe Center for the Arts is kicking off its 2019-2020 season with a play that is meant to challenge you.

"Dutchman" was written at the height of the civil rights movement and shines a light on our country’s ongoing racial tensions. 

That’s why TCA Producing Artistic Director Ralph Remington wanted to do it now.

The play also has deep roots for him, as he told The Show.
