The Niceties

Written by Eleanor Burgess

Directed by Claire Fort

July 23 – August 2

During office hours, in a discussion about slavery and the American Revolution, the gloves come off between an ambitious student and her professor. When the niceties are abandoned, neither comes out unscathed.

The Washington Post calls The Niceties “a barnburner of a play,” and “one of the best plays I’ve seen about who gets to tell the story of America, and how.”
