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.

Diamond brings these characters together in this sharp, witty play about social and sexual politics. Learn More
