“Top 10 of 2017! A barnburner of a play… One of the best plays I’ve seen about who gets to tell the story of America, and how.” - The Washington Post

The Washington Post calls The Niceties "scintillating… gripping… destined to be staged everywhere"

Peter Marks in The Washington Post calls The Niceties “scintillating… gripping… destined to be staged everywhere… complexly and entertainingly rendered… a vituperative battle of wills, an exchange of charges and threats and gambits that reveals reasonable arguments and unreasonable demands… The story of America, it seems, is destined to be wrestled over to the bitter end.”
