Guest director Ashley H. White directs Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ “gut-puchingly honest work” (Time Out Chicago) about three adult siblings sorting through their late father’s mementos at the family's run-down Arkansas homestead. After an unsettling discovery among their father's possessions, the gathering erupts into an explosive turn of events. Winner of the 2014-15 Obie Award for Best New American Play, Appropriate delves into the fractured dynamics of a dysfunctional white family coming to terms with the patriarch's disturbing past.

Presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC, servicing the Dramatists Play Service collection.
