The Niceties @ Intiman Theatre (Seattle – Capitol Hill)

April 23, 2023 @ 2:00 pm

A pair of progressive women — a white baby boomer and a Black millennial — are pitted against each other at an elite university as a tenured history professor argues with her student about the effects of slavery on the American Revolution. What begins as a polite clash in perspectives explodes into a dramatic fight that will alter both their lives forever.

The campus is torn apart as their polite clash in perspectives explodes into a dramatic fight, forcing us to choose a side as it asks: how much are you willing to sacrifice for the sake of progress?

Written by Eleanor Burgess, directed by Sheila Daniels, performed by Amy Thone and Varinique “V” Davis. Staged in the round at the Erickson Theatre.
