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 power, 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.

Produced in association with Manhattan Theatre Club and McCarter Theatre Center

Approximate run time: The Niceties plays in approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes, including one 10-minute intermission.



Eleanor Burgess“I'm thrilled to be working at the Huntington – the place where I saw my first plays as a teenager, and the place that gave me my start as a professional playwright through the Huntington Playwriting Fellows program. And I'm extra thrilled to bring this particular play to Boston. A story about academic power and liberal dogmas, about frighteningly smart people and the stories we tell ourselves about history – it's made for this city.” — Eleanor Burgess
