Phoenix Theatre presents
By Branden Jacobs-Jenkins
“an exceptionally brilliant piece of writing.” —Time Out Chicago.
Phoenix Theatre, the Sheldon’s resident community theatre company, presents the 2015 Obie Award winning “Best New American Play,” Appropriate. 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.
Appropriate is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York
