About this show

Set on Martha's Vineyard, where African Americans have had a rich cultural history dating back to the early 1600s, Stick Fly, by Lydia R. Diamond, explores race, class, and familial relationships in a contemporary African American family. Chuck Smith directs. Taylor Bradley Scott is a young entomologist just meeting her fiancé's affluent family at their cottage on Martha's Vineyard. Dark family secrets surface as Taylor navigates this new social landscape of brown bag cotillions, Jack and Jill memberships, and Ivy League legacies. Growing tensions fuel Taylor's sense of isolation and struggle for self-discovery.
