About The Niceties
Race. History. Power. Zoe, a black student at an Ivy League University, is called into her white professor’s office to discuss her thesis about slavery’s effect on the American Revolution. In this riveting two-person drama, a polite clash in perspectives explodes into an urgent and dangerous contemporary debate. “Scintillating,” raves Peter Marks in the Washington Post. “The story of America, it seems, is destined to be wrestled over to the bitter end.” Kimberly Senior (Disgraced on Broadway) directs.
