Event Description

The play "Smart People" will be performed at TPAC's Johnson Theater Feb. 8th - 24th. 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, & 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 & socially aware. With barbed wit, this smart play explores the inescapable nature of racism & other tricky topics.
