Nashville Rep presents Smart People at TPAC on February 10 – 24.
In this play set just before Obama’s election, the volatile dynamics of talking about race intertwine with the romantic interactions among four racially diverse Harvard intellectuals. A physician, an actress, a psychologist, and a neurobiologist who is studying the brain’s response to race (is it genetic?), all find that discussions about race can turn unexpectedly, even among friends who are well educated and socially aware. With barbed wit, this smart play explores the inescapable nature of racism and other tricky topics.
Previews: February 8 and 9
