About this show

In this riveting play, a black student and a white professor — both brilliant, both liberal — meet to discuss the student's paper about slavery's role in the American Revolution. A polite conversation becomes an intellectual powder keg of race, history, and privilege, after which neither woman will ever be the same. The Niceties is an explosive new play from Boston native and Huntington Playwriting Fellow Eleanor Burgess.
