"...a sexy, serious, and very, very funny

modern-day comedy of manners." – VARIETY

 

SMART PEOPLE
By Lydia R. Diamond
Directed by Desdemona Chiang

March 15 – April 9, 2017
STAGE II

Brilliant, hilarious, and incisive, Lydia R. Diamond (writer of The Bluest Eye and Broadway’s Stick Fly) explores the 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 actress, 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 DisgracedSmart People asks the questions that don’t always get asked in public. 
“A challenge to complacency … Smart People (is) a splendid new play about race.” – The Boston Globe

 

L-R: Sullivan Jones, Ka-Ling Cheung, Peter O’Connor and Tiffany Nichole Greene.
