Cleveland Public Theatre presents
BARBECUE<http://www.cptonline.org/performances/seasons/2016-2017/barbecue/> by Robert O’Hara

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. Regional Premiere.

Ashley Aquilla, Tonya Broach, Scott A. Campbell, Teresa DeBerry, Maryann Elder, Sally Groth*, Katrice Monee Headd, Jill Levin, Ray McNiece & Pamela Morton
