Robert O'Hara's Barbecue Opens at the Public Theater
Kent Gash directs the new comedy, which stars Kim Wayans.
The play is set at a family barbecue with the O'Malleys. The family has staged an intervention for their drug-abusing sister Barbara at their local park, but the event becomes raucous and unpredictable as familial stereotypes collide with hard realities.
The company is made up of Becky Ann Baker (Girls), Marc Damon Johnson (Radio Golf), Arden Myrin (Chelsea Lately), Paul Niebanck (A Picture of Autumn), Tamberla Perry (By the Way, Meet Vera Stark), Constance Shulman (Orange Is the New Black), Heather Alicia Simms (As the World Turns), Samantha Soule (And I and Silence), Benja Kay Thomas (Bootycandy), and Kim Wayans (In Living Color).
Barbecue features scenic design by Clint Ramos, costume design by Paul Tazewell, lighting design by Jason Lyons, and original music and sound design by Lindsay Jones.
