The Niceties

THE NICETIES
by Eleanor Burgess

Thursday, August 1, 2019 to Sunday, August 11, 2019
Ruth Caplin Theatre

When ambitious young African-American student Zoe sits down with her esteemed white professor to discuss a paper she is writing about the American Revolution, discussions of grammar and Google quickly give way to explosive exchanges about race, history, and power. As the passion rises, so do the stakes, as both women become entrenched in their positions, and allow us to see the dangers of the way we talk to each other today, the way we listen, and what happens when we don’t.
