Barbecue by Robert O’Hara
Directed by Teresa Langston
Produced by John Bosco and Laurie Maria Cabral
The grill is hot, the beer is chilled and the table is set for a typical O’Mallery family barbecue. But when their drug-addicted sister Zippity Boom arrives strung-out and out of control, her siblings have finally had enough—enough beer, enough whiskey and enough pills to stage an intervention.
However, there are, in fact, parallel O’Mallery families, one white and one black.
Racial politics collide with family stereotypes, survival, culture and identity.
This fast paced, satirical romp that may just give you something to chew on!
Cast of 5 White/5 Black. 2M 8W – adult language and themes of dysfunctional family, drug and alcohol abuse, redemption, identity and race.
Sides will be provided.
