Power of Sail
Directed by Jackson Gay
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 shuts 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.
