Please join YaleWomen Boston for a special opportunity to meet playwright Eleanor Burgess ’07 during the August 31st through October 6th run of her play The Niceties at the Huntington Theatre Company! A Brookline native, Eleanor describes The Niceties as “a story about academic power and liberal dogmas, about frighteningly smart people and the stories we tell ourselves about history – it’s made for this city.” After the 2 pm performance on the 29th, Eleanor will be doing a talkback, focusing on how we talk about and teach history, including painful elements of American history. For those interested in gathering for lunch before the performance, we will make a reservation at The Beehive at 12:15 pm. Please rsvp here so that we can reserve enough seats at the restaurant. You must purchase your own ticket to the play.
The Washington Post describes The Niceties as “a barnburner of a play! Destined to be performed everywhere. One of the best plays I’ve seen about who gets to tell the story of America, and how.”
Learn more or purchase tickets at the Huntington Theatre website.
