Roundabout welcomes back playwright Jireeh Breon Holder following his triumphant 2017 Underground debut, Too Heavy For Your Pocket. In this new work, a Mimi Commission for Roundabout, three generations of men live under one roof and grapple with their own truths of what it means to be black and gay. It's an exploration of pride, pain, and patience through the unflinching eyes of fathers and sons.
