2014 OBIE AWARD-WINNER – BEST NEW AMERICAN PLAY

After the death of their patriarch, the estranged members of the Lafayette clan gather at their crumbling Arkansas plantation home to mourn his loss and settle his estate.  While sifting through a lifetime of memories and junk, they make a gruesome discovery that forces them to confront their family’s dark past.  Playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins (NeighborsAn Octoroon) offers his own subversive take on a classic American genre for a bold new look at race and identity.

RUN TIME: Approx. 2 hours and 15 minutes with one intermission.
