Written by Lydia Diamond

This winner of the Black Theatre Alliance Award for Best Play chronicles a weekend in the life of an affluent African American family. The tensions ride high as the Levay brothers bring their respective fiancées home to meet the parents. Family secrets, childhood demons and romantic entanglements are revealed, leading to collisions over race, class, and privilege. Gender roles and generational dynamics further ignite this explosive tragic comedy.

“A MUST SEE. Fascinating. Arrestingly fresh.” - The Wall Street Journal

“She’s a polished playwright, creating a cast-full of dynamic characters all sitting uncomfortably on a powder-keg situation.” - The Boston Globe

“A juicy family drama.” - Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
