by Lydia R. Diamond
directed by Kenny Leon

Seceond Stage Theater
January 26-March 6, 2016

With MAHERSHALA ALI (House of Cards), JOSHUA JACKSON (The Affair), ANNE SON (My Generation), and TESSA THOMPSON (Creed).

The quest for love, achievement and identity is universal, but what role does race play in the story of our lives? On the eve of Obama’s first election, four Harvard intellectuals find themselves entangled in a complex web of social and sexual politics in this provocative and funny new play by Lydia R. Diamond (Stick Fly), helmed by Kenny Leon (The Wiz Live!), the Tony Award®-winning director of the 2014 revival of A Raisin in the Sun.

"A splendid, witty & exuberant new play!" - Boston Globe
