"So I thought, since we can't do Europe this summer, why don't the kids and I just do a little Southern History road trip? We're going to drive back home through Mississippi, Louisiana—all those places—experience some of Daddy's heritage."
After the success of 2019's Gloria, Outhouse Theatre Co reunites with Branden Jacobs-Jenkins for his explosively hilarious take on the great American family drama.
The Lafayette family gather at their late father's home in Arkansas to bury the hatchet and prepare the former plantation for its Estate Sale.
Until they make a discovery that changes everything.
Winner of the Obie Award for Best New American Play, this wickedly subversive tour de force lays bare a dark and terrible history corroding the soul of a family—and a nation.
Craig Baldwin (John, The Flick) directs the Australian premiere of Appropriate.
