Barbecue

Chuck Smith, guest director
By Robert O'Hara

The O’Mallery family gathers in a local park to confront a sibling about her substance abuse. Is it a made-for-reality-television event? Not quite. As the narrative unspools, members of the family attack and retreat. Familiar tropes from domestic dramas give way to startling new revelations as a family’s identity shape-shifts across an evolving landscape of race, class, and consciousness. Illinois Theatre welcomes playwright Robert O’Hara to our community as we produce this exciting new comedy, directed by the Goodman Theatre’s Chuck Smith.

Contains adult content

There will be a post-performance Talkback on Thursday, April 5.
