Counter Offence by Rahul Varma

Counter Offence by Rahul Varma


When Shapoor, an Iranian with immigration issues and parental problems, is accused of beating his wife, he’s arrested by Sgt. Galliard, a white police officer, who, in the same instance, is both racist yet dedicated to preventing violence against women. Ms. Clarinda Keith, a Black social worker, and activist committed to zero-tolerance on violence against women, comes to Galliard’s defence despite the prevalence of police racism against Black people.

The play skillfully counterpoints racism and spousal abuse to show how the intersections of two issues can be used to mislead the public, while the establishment and politicians go their own self-serving ways.
