Description

An astounding new play about race and power in America, explored through the lens of a family drama. Grandma's birthday approaches. Beverly is organizing the perfect dinner, but everything seems doomed to go awry-the silverware is all wrong, the radio is on the fritz, and the rest of the family can't be bothered to lift a hand to help. And yet, what appears at first to be a standard family dramedy takes a sharp, sly turn into a startling examination of deep-seated paradigms about race in America.
