The Niceties

By Eleanor Burgess

Directed by Annika Boras

In this riveting two-person drama, an ambitious young black student and her esteemed white professor meet to discuss their differing views on the college juniorís paper about slavery and the American Revolution. A polite clash of ideas soon landslides into an explosive discussion of race, history, and power. Riddled with smart dialogue, this dramatic confrontation forces us to empathize with two vibrant and complicated women. Itís an entertaining and thought-provoking nail-biter that that will have everyone talking.
