The Niceties

Gil Cates Theater
Written by Eleanor Burgess
Directed by Kimberly Senior
Featuring Lisa Banes & Jordan Boatman

"In truth, there are few areas of American life that The Niceties doesn’t speak to right now." —Los Angeles Times

In this “barnburner of a play” (The Washington Post), two extraordinary women square off in a high-stakes academic debate over race, reputation and who gets the final word on how American history is written. When university professor Janine and her brilliant student Zoe don’t see eye to eye, their routine office hours discussion unexpectedly careens off course—and threatens to derail their careers, lives and the status quo.
