The New York Premiere of Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' Appropriate begins performances February 25 at The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center. Directed by Liesel Tommy, the off-Broadway play will run through April 6, with opening night set for March 16.
The estranged members of the Lafayette clan have returned to Arkansas and their crumbling old plantation home to settle the accounts of their recently deceased patriarch. As they sort through a lifetime of hoarded mementos and junk, the discovery of a gruesome relic and a surprise visitor send the family into a spiral of crackling confrontations, repressed histories, and regret.
The cast includes Maddie Corman, Tony nominee Johanna Day, Alex Dreier, Mike Faist, Izzy Hanson-Johnston, Sonya Harum and Michael Laurence.
