Smart People comes to the South End Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA, just moments from Boston Hotels like The Boston Park Plaza Hotel, and it delivers a highly-controversial and fiercely funny performance that is sure to get people talking.
The Boston Herald says of Smart People, “Lydia Diamond’s dialogue is so damn SMART AND CLEVER.”
Are our beliefs and prejudices hard-wired into us? Four Harvard intellectuals, a doctor, and actress, a psychologist, and a neurobiologist studying the human brain’s response to race search for love, success, and identity in a complex world. Huntington Playwriting Fellow Lydia R. Diamond (Stick Fly) explores the inescapable nature of racism and other tricky topics with barbed wit in a new play that is directed by Huntington Artistic Director Peter DuBois (Rapture, Blister, Burn, and Sons of the Prophet).
