In this World Premiere, Harvard professor Charles Nichols is afraid that his prominence is fading as he watches a younger generation of academics appear on the cable news talking head circuit.  So he takes a calculated risk in inviting an incredibly controversial White Nationalist speaker to campus.  The student body immediately protests and the administration shuts him down. Undeterred, Charles takes a grad student with him to interview the subject, with disastrous results.  With a contemporary plot that feels ripped from the headlines, this new drama crackles with a deep and immediate urgency.

Featuring designs by Shannon Robert (Scenic), Kendra Johnson (Costumes), Marc Gwinn (Sound), and Cassidy Bowles (Properties).
