About The Niceties

Stream on demand through June 13. Manhattan Theatre Club in association with The Huntington presents the virtual premiere of The Niceties, written by Eleanor Burgess and directed by Kimberly Senior. The presentation reunites the original stars Lisa Banes and Jordan Boatman, and has been reimagined for the virtual stage since its original production in MTC’s 2018-2019 season at The Studio at Stage II.

An ambitious, young Black college student and her esteemed white professor meet over Skype to discuss a paper the college junior is writing about the American Revolution. Unfortunately, they find it hard to agree about the facts of the past – or the present. Discussions of grammar and Google turn to race and reputation, and soon they’re in dangerous territory neither of them had foreseen – and facing stunning implications that can’t be undone. The New York Times hails it as “a bristling, provocative debate play about race and privilege in the United States.”

The Niceties is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
