It is the eve of Obama’s first election. Four of Harvard University’s brightest; a surgeon, an actress, a psychologist, and a neuro-psychiatrist, are all interested in different aspects of the brain, particularly how it responds to race. But like all smart people, they are also searching for love, success, and identity in their own lives. Lydia R. Diamond brings these characters together in this sharp, witty play about social and sexual politics. Learn More

“Splendid! Diamond…draw[s] laughs even as she firmly pushes back against the notion that we’re living in a ‘post-racial society.’” BOSTON GLOBE, Read More
