The Rep: Smart People

It is the eve of Obama’s first election. Four of Harvard University’s brightest – a surgeon, an actress, a psychologist and a neuro-psychiatrist – are all interested in different aspects of the brain, particularly how it responds to race. But like all smart people, they are also searching for love, success and identity in their own lives. Lydia Diamond brings these characters together in a sharp, witty play about social and sexual politics.

The Rep includes three plays presented in rotating performance over a two-week period. The plays include 

Smart People by Lydia R. Diamond, How I Learned to Drive by Paula Vogel, and We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, from the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1885-1915 by Jackie Sibblies Drury.
