Directed by Steve Bologna

March 1 to March 17, 2024

The 5th production of the 2023-2024 Season

In a first-ring suburb just outside a city that might be Detroit, Ben and Mary see sudden signs of life at the deserted house next door and invite their new neighbors Sharon and Kenny over for a barbecue. As the action unfolds we learn that Sharon and Kenny met at rehab, neither is employed, and they don’t own a stick of furniture. The quintessential American back-yard party quickly turns into something more dangerous—and filled with potential.

This incredible play premiered at the Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago in 2010 and subsequently ran Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in fall 2012. The play then won the Obie Award for Best New American Play shortly after.
