Woolly Mammouth Theater Company presents Lab alum Branden Jacobs-Jenkins play APPROPRIATE directed by alumna Liesl Tommy
In this searing comic drama, the estranged members of the Lafayette family return to their crumbling Arkansas plantation home to settle the accounts of their recently deceased patriarch. As they sort through a hoarded lifetime of mementos and junk, they discover a gruesome relic that sends them spiraling into a dark history of repressed memories and family secrets.
A subversive and bitingly funny potboiler with more secrets than you can shake a stick at, Appropriate marks the professional homecoming of theatrical provocateur Branden Jacobs-Jenkins to Washington, DC.
Branden wrote the play THE CHANGE in the Writer/Director Lab, and Liesl Tommy directed 1001 in the Writer/Director Lab, written by Jason Grote.
