About this show

Have you seen the new neighbors? Richard Patterson is not happy. The family of black actors that has moved in next door is loud, tacky, shameless, and uncouth. And they are not just infiltrating his neighborhood--they threaten his reputation, his family, and his comfortably progressive lifestyle. This wildly theatrical, explosive play on race marks the major debut of Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, a member of the Public's Emerging Writers Group. Public LAB is an annual series of new plays that lets you see more of the work you love from The Public in stripped-down productions for ONLY $10. Public LAB allows us to support more artists and gives you immediate access to new plays.
