AVLT presents Branden Jacobs-Jenkins 2nd Obie award winning play, the subversively original, Appropriate. All the estranged members of a fractured family have descended upon the crumbling Southern homestead to settle the estate 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. The Washington Post say Jacobs-Jenkins has a gift for "drawing his characters into an escalating conflict and sustaining with humor and craft, our curiosity about how they digest the terrible information thrown at them." Directed by David Glover.
