This drama is an explosive two-character power struggle between a university professor and a student failing his course. When the student confronts the professor (who is up for tenure), a breakdown in communication results in an outrageous accusation and a range of emotions from confusion to pity to rage. Written as a response to the Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill hearings in 1992, this work is often cited as being about sexual harassment and political correctness, though the playwright leaves many questions unanswered.
