Show Description

Pulitzer Prize finalist and Obie Award winner Branden Jacobs-Jenkins and Drama Desk Award winner Lila Neugebauer invite you to one helluva reunion in this darkly comic American family drama, presented by Second Stage Theater

It’s summer, the cicadas are singing and the Lafayette family has returned to their late patriarch’s Arkansas home to deal with the remains of his estate. Toni (Sarah Paulson), the eldest daughter, hopes they’ll spend the weekend remembering and reconnecting over their beloved father. Bo (Corey Stoll), her brother, wants to recoup some of the funds he spent caring for Dad at the end of his life. But things take a turn when their estranged brother, Franz, appears late one night, and mysterious objects are discovered among the clutter. Suddenly, long-hidden secrets and buried resentments can’t be contained, and the family is forced to face the ghosts of their past.
