  • The Niceties

    by Eleanor Burgess | Directed by Kimberly Senior
    August 31 - October 6, 2018
    South End / Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA

    In this explosive story, a black student and a white professor – both brilliant, both liberal – meet to discuss a paper about slavery's role in the American Revolution. A polite conversation becomes a powder keg of race, history, and privilege, and neither woman will ever be the same. An entertaining and provocative nail-biter, written by Boston native Eleanor Burgess and directed by Broadway veteran Kimberly Senior (Disgraced), that everyone will be talking about.
