WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Brilliant, hilarious, and incisive, Lydia R. Diamond (adaptor of The Bluest Eye and author of Broadway's Stick Fly) explores deep questions of race and identity in this controversial and fiercely funny play. On the eve of Obama's first election, four intellectuals — a doctor, an actor, a psychologist, and a neurobiologist studying the human brain's response to racial differences — find themselves entangled in a complex web of social and sexual politics. Everyone wants to be successful, to find love, and to feel as if they've made a positive impact on the world. But what influence does race have on that quest? In the great tradition of Clybourne Park and Disgraced, Smart People asks the questions that don't always get asked in public.
