Every estranged member of the Lafayette clan has descended upon the crumbling Arkansas homestead to settle the accounts 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.  Appropriate is the winner of the 2014-2015 Obie Award for Best New American Play.

"…very fine, subversively original…[Jacobs-Jenkins] honors the time-tested recipes of those who have gone before him, combining them into a crafty narrative…But he also brings a culinary self-consciousness to the mix that makes you savor the ingredients anew, while pondering why they have dominated American theater for so long…remarkable and devious." —The New York Times

Appropriate is rated R for adult language and content and is not recommended for those under 18.
