Overview

Critics Pick! "Subversively original! Remarkable and devious!"

Ben Brantley, New York Times 

"A star-making production for Branden Jacobs-Jenkins!"

Stephan Lee, Entertainment Weekly 

Final Week! Through April 13 Only!
 

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.

Appropriate is a New York premiere by Residency Five playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, winner of the 2013 Sundance Theatre Institute Tennessee Williams Award.

Please note: Appropriate contains strong language, partial nudity and adult situations. May not be suitable for children under 16.
