"When the Lafayettes descend upon a crumbling Arkansan plantation to liquidate their dead patriarch's estate, his three adult children collide over clutter, debt and a contentious family history," press notes state. "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. A play about the trouble with inheritance, memory loss, and the art of repression."
The creative team of Appropriate includes Yu Shibigaki (set design), Janice Pytel (costume design), Jesse Klug (lighting design), Chris LaPorte (sound design) and Jesse Gaffney (prop design). Ryan Bourque is the fight choreographer, Joe Schermoly is the technical director, and Dennis J. Conners is the stage manager.
Appropriate is presented in association with Actors Theatre of Louisville and was developed, in part, by IGNITION 2012.
