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 attempts to shut 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 Rob Kahn (Rocky Horror 2018), Kerrie Seymour (Richard III, August: Osage County), Frank Oakley III (Warehouse debut), Christopher Paul Smith (Much Ado About Nothing, Spring Awakening), Anna Abhau Elliott (Warehouse debut), and Brock Koonce (Clybourne Park, Christmas on the Rocks).

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