About the event
Smart People “…a sexy, serious, and very, very funny modern-day comedy of manners.” —Variety
Four intelligent, attractive and opinionated Harvard-associated professionals search for love, success and identity while attempting to navigate the intricacies of racial and sexual politics in this whip-smart new play.
Through bright, funny dialogue and fast-paced vignettes, playwright Lydia Diamond brings her quartet of complicated characters to vibrant life.
Jackson, a young African-American surgical resident, who struggles to get along with his superiors, tires himself out running a clinic for uninsured patients.
Ginny, an academic psychologist of Japanese-Chinese heritage, at the extreme end of self-assuredness, studies Asian-American women’s reactions to stress.
Brian, a properly smart and smug White neuroscientist is running into career roadblocks researching the brain’s responses to race and its societal implications.
Valerie, an African-American actor, pays her rent by cleaning houses and working as Brian’s research assistant.
