Directed by Curtis M. Jackson
March 11 – 27, 2022 at Riverside Theatre
Academia is the new battlefront. Zoe, a black student at a liberal arts college, is called into her white professor’s office to discuss her paper about slavery’s effect on the American Revolution. What begins as a polite clash in perspectives explodes into an urgent debate about race, history, and power.
All Thursday and Sunday performances of The Niceties are 50% capacity.
Every performance will follow Riverside Theatre’s policy below:
- Masks are required to be worn correctly by all staff, volunteers, and patrons while in the venue.
- In addition to embracing face-masks as a public health tool, we require all patrons to present a 72- hour (or less) negative COVID-19 test for each individual attending the performance, at every performance.
