Event description
The plot of every American dysfunctional (white) family drama comes into one big pressure cooker in Brendan Jacobs-Jenkens' Appropriate.

About this Event

Every estranged member of the Lafayette clan has descended upon the crumbling Arkansas homestead to settle the accounts of the newly-dead patriarch. As his three adult children sort through a lifetime of hoarded mementos and junk, they collide over clutter, debt, and a contentious family history. But after a disturbing discovery surfaces among their father's possessions, the reunion takes a turn for the explosive, unleashing a series of crackling surprises and confrontations.

"…prodigiously gifted… [Branden Jacobs-Jenkins] effortlessly and believably taps into a white family's dysfunction, infuses the script with unforced, viperish humor… APPROPRIATE is an uncommonly deft dramatic and technical achievement." —Entertainment Weekly.
“Appropriate” is, at heart, a ghost story, in the most profound sense...Without forcing us, this remarkable and devious play allows us to draw our own parallels with the human sound and fury that fills most of the evening." - The New York Times
“What is exhilarating about the play is that Jacobs-Jenkins pushes everything to the limits.” - The Guardian
