The Niceties — Chester Theatre
July 15 @ 7:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until July 24, 2021
Zoe, a Black student at an elite liberal arts college, comes into her white professor’s office to discuss her paper about slavery’s effect on the American Revolution, and what begins as a polite clash in perspectives explodes into an urgent debate about race, history, and power — as Chester Theatre presents The Niceties by Eleanor Burgess.
The Washington Post calls The Niceties “a barnburner of a play,” and “one of the best plays I’ve seen about who gets to tell the story of America, and how.”
Stephanie Everett and Andrea Gallo will perform in Chester Theatre’s 2021 summer play, outdoors under the tent at Hancock Shaker Village.
