THE PLAY: The head of admissions for a New England prep school strives to increase student diversity, while facing related issues at home.

THE PRODUCTION: The actors are all perfect in their roles, capturing the conflicts with assurance and so many “colors.” Jacqueline Jones starts the show with a delightful comic character and brings more humor every time she returns. The rest of the cast faces a more serious challenge, but does well (notable is Tyler Stevens’ extended rant). Director Deejay Gray has kept the pace brisk and the staging simple. allowing the cast to marshall the needed emotiional interactions. Connor Scudder has made impressive use of the space, creating an attractive kitchen with a hint of an office up front. Ruth Hedberg’s costumes are character appropriate, attractive and flattering. Running time: 2:00

 

THE POINT: This is basically a dramatized debate on racism that’s elevated by the smart script and involving performances.
