Video: A Look Inside Rutina Wesley’s Play ‘The Submission’We’ve been reporting steadily about Rutina Wesley’s new play “The Submission” which can currently be seen off-Broadway in New York City.

In The Submission, her co-star, Tony Award nominee Jonathan Groff plays Danny Larsen, a playwright who hides under the female pen name Shaleeha G’ntamobi. When his drama about an African-American family is accepted into the nation’s preeminent theater festival, he is faced with a multitude of difficult decisions. Rutina’s character, however, is faced with the role of a lifetime, stepping in as G’ntamobi and passing off the work as her own until the carefully devised plan seems to backfire.

The cast also includes Eddie Kaye Thomas (The Diary of Anne Frank, Bachelorette, “American Pie”) as Danny’s partner and Will Rogers (Unnatural Acts, When the Rain Stops Falling) as Danny’s best friend.

Check out a “sneak peek” at a few scenes from The Submission below:
