Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


It is the eve of Obama's first election. Four of Harvard University's brightest; a surgeon an actress a psychologist and a neuro-psychiatrist are all interested in different aspects of the brain particularly how it responds to race. But like all smart people they are also searching for love success and identity in their own lives. Lydia Diamond brings these characters together in this sharp witty play about social and sexual politics.

Praise For…

"...crisp and clever dialogue...Smart People is very funny because it reflects a very sympathetic human foible; the desire to resolve our racial conflicts without messing things up every time we open our mouths." —

"Smart People is a great ride; I loved every talky minute of it." —Deadline

"Splendid! Diamond...draw[s] laughs even as she firmly pushes back against the notion that we’re living in a 'post-racial society.'" —Boston Globe
