Appropriate

Arkansas, present day. The estranged members of the Lafayette family gather at their late father’s crumbling plantation to prepare for the estate sale. But decades of resentment have a way of bubbling to the surface, and a shocking discovery in the piles of clutter sends them spiraling as they confront repressed histories, regrets and each other. Winner of the Obie Award for Best American Play, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ crackling comedic drama is called “subversively original…remarkable and devious” by The New York Times.
