School of Theatre and Dance presents BARBEQUE by Robert O’Hara
Barbeque by Robert O’Hara
Directed by Tyrone Phillips, Guest Artist
In this hilarious and devastating comedy by Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, Antebellum), the pill-popping, chain-smoking, whiskey-swilling, and foul-mouthed O’Mallerys have gathered in their local park to share some barbecue and straight talk with their trainwreck of a sister Barbara, whose spiral of drugs and recklessness has forced her siblings to stage an open-air intervention. When the story twists to reveal two parallel families–one white, one black–the event becomes raucous and unpredictable. Racial politics collide with family stereotypes, survival, and America’s fascination with self-destruction as entertainment
