In this biting comic-drama, the estranged members of the Lafayette family return home to their run-down Arkansas estate after the passing of the family patriarch. As they sort through a lifetime of mementos, they discover a gruesome relic that turns their reunion into an escalating series of shocks, showdowns and revelations. Winner of the 2014-2015 Obie Award for Best New American Play, Appropriate is--on the surface--an homage to the classics of the American theater canon. Look deeper into Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ “remarkable and devious” (The New York Times) new play, though, and discover what familial ghosts await.
