A select table reserved at an exclusive café inspires a ravenous appetite from African-American professors Ann and Rachelle. From seed to slaughter, their host has the evening fully planned – down to the last chair. This comedic culinary celebration turns from crudité to cruelty as our scholars banter, debate and battle each other to claim their literal seat at the table.

Blackademics is produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.
