About the show

A comedy about a family returning home after many years away, only to discover a deep, hidden family secret. More…

The estranged members of the Lafayette clan have returned to Arkansas and their crumbling old plantation home to settle the accounts of their recently deceased patriarch. As they sort through a lifetime of hoarded mementos and junk, the discovery of a gruesome relic and a surprise visitor send the family into a spiral of crackling confrontations, repressed histories, and regret.

Relevant, Thought-provoking, Funny, Great writing, Must see

See it if you like theater...terrific play. Saw the Julliard production (2016). Wonderful cast...but it's the play that's the winner.

Don't see it if are uncomfortable with dysfunctional families of racial themes...or if you only like musicals. Otherwise...see it!

Clever, Dizzying, Great acting, Great singing, Relevant

See it if You need your eyes opened

Don't see it if Looking back on the past makes your soul cringe

Absorbing, Clever, Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging

See it if You like plays that are loud and debaucherous and twisted.

Don't see it if You are into more classical shows.
