Princeton Summer Theater presents Appropriate by Princeton alum Branden Jacobs-Jenkins ’06. Members of the fragmented Lafayette family reconnect to settle their father’s affairs, but soon discover that they must first tackle their unresolved issues with each other. Jacobs-Jenkins’ Obie Award-winning play incorporates shocking reveals coupled with absurdist undertones that expose what it means to be part of a family, culture, and nation built upon a troubled past. A vivid and original take on the household drama, Appropriate takes its place in the American canon as an incomparable masterpiece. Directed by Tatiana Pandiani.
