“Subversively original… 'Appropriate' is piercingly clear, remarkable and devious.” —The New York Times

Winner of the 2014-2015 Obie Award for Best New American Play, "Appropriate" is "exceptionally brilliant [and] gut-punchingly honest” (TimeOut). Follow along with bated breath as estranged family members return to their crumbling Arkansas homestead in the wake of their father's death. When a disturbing discovery surfaces among his possessions, their reunion takes a turn for the explosive, unleashing a series of crackling surprises and confrontations.
