Woolly Mammoth Theatre Present 'Appropriate'
In this searing and audacious comic drama, the estranged members of the Lafayette family return to Arkansas, and their crumbling old plantation home, to settle the accounts of their recently deceased patriarch. As they sort through a hoarded lifetime of mementos and junk, they discover a gruesome relic that sends the family spiraling into a dark history of repressed memories and family secrets.
Playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins returns to his hometown of Washington, DC with a production that appropriates a classic trope-the great white family drama a la O'Neill or Tennessee Williams-to brilliantly subvert our assumptions, and challenge us to re-consider our own histories and souls.
Show Schedule: Wednesday through Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 3pm & 8pm, Sunday at 2pm & 7pm. There will be no performance on Thursday, November 28.
Tickets starting at $35. Prices subject to change. http://www.woollymammoth.net
