Manhattan Theatre Club in association with The Huntington presents The Niceties by Eleanor Burgess, directed by Kimberly Senior, starring Lisa Banes and Jordan Boatman

Manhattan Theatre Club in association with The Huntington presents the free virtual premiere of The Niceties, written by Eleanor Burgess and directed by Kimberly Senior. The presentation reunites the original stars Lisa Banes and Jordan Boatman, updated for the virtual stage since its original production in MTC’s 2018-2019 Season at The Studio at Stage II.

An ambitious young Black college student and her esteemed White professor meet over Skype to discuss a paper the college junior is writing about the American Revolution. Unfortunately, they find it hard to agree about the facts of the past – or the present. Discussions of grammar and Google turn to race and reputation, and soon they’re in dangerous territory neither of them had foreseen – and facing stunning implications that can’t be undone.
