WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Do our belief systems stem from our environment, or are some prejudices hardwired into us? With barbed wit, Lydia R. Diamond (Stick Fly) explores the unavoidable nature of racism and other sticky subjects in the controversial and fiercely funny new play Smart People. Four intellectuals — a doctor, an actress, a psychologist, and a neurobiologist studying the human brain's response to race — search for love, acceptance, and identity in a complex world where political correctness comes face-to-face with cold hard data.
