Photos: First Look at Becky Ann Baker, Constance Shulman & More in BARBECUE at The Public


Written by Robert O'Hara and directed by Kent Gash, BARBECUE is running at The Public through Sunday, November 1, with an official press opening on Thursday, October 8. Check out a first look below!

The complete cast of BARBECUE features Becky Ann Baker, Marc Damon Johnson, Arden Myrin, Paul Niebanck, Tamberla Perry, Constance Shulman, Heather Alicia Simms, Samantha Soule, Benja Kay Thomas, and Kim Wayans.

The O'Mallerys have gathered in their local park to share some Barbecue and straight talk with their sister Barbara, whose spiral of drugs and recklessness has forced her siblings to stage an open-air intervention. But the event becomes raucous and unpredictable as familial stereotypes collide with hard realities, and racial politics slam up against the stories we tell-and maybe even believe-about who we were and who we become. Kent Gash directs this new play that proves family can be a bigger vice than any other addiction.
