Do our belief systems stem from our environment, or are some prejudices hard-wired into us? With barbed wit, Lydia R. Diamond (Stick Fly) explores the unavoidable nature of cultural bias and other sticky subjects in the controversial and fiercely funny new play Smart People. Four intellectuals — a doctor, an actress, a psychologist, and a neurobiologist studying the human brain's response to race — search for love, acceptance, and identity in a complex world where political correctness comes face-to-face with cold hard data.



Seldom do contemporary American plays tap so directly into the cultural conversation as it’s happening.
