SMART PEOPLE by Lydia R.Diamond
Mitch and Murray Productions is back with another Vancouver premiere of a provocative new play.

Brilliant, hilarious, and incisive, playwright Lydia R. Diamond (writer of The Bluest Eye and Broadway's Stick Fly) explores the deep questions of race and identity in this controversial and fiercely funny play.

On the eve of Obama's first election, four intellectuals - a doctor, an actress, a psychologist, and a neurobiologist studying the human brain's response to racial differences -  find themselves entangled in a complex web of social and sexual politics. Everyone wants to be successful, to find love, and to feel as if they've made a positive impact on the world. But what influence does race have on that quest?

In the great tradition of Clybourne Park and Disgraced, Smart People asks the questions that don't always get asked in public.

"One of the most stimulating productions of the season."  Colin Thomas, Theatre Critic

"Smart, complicated people should see it."  Jo Ledingham, Theatre Critic

Directed by David Mackay.  Featuring Kwesi Ameyaw, Tricia Collins, Aaron Craven and Katrina Reynolds.
