About this show

Beverly insists the celebration for Grandma's birthday be perfect. But her husband is useless, her sister is into the wine, and her daughter's secrets are threatening to derail the day. Meanwhile a group of spectators has put them all under surveillance. Soon the voyeurs launch an invasion on the festivities, forcing the family to battle for their very identities. Jackie Sibblies Drury (We Are Proud to Present…) returns to Woolly to boldly confront our perceptions of racism in the United States by ripping the conventional family drama to shreds and asking the question "who is watching whom?"

The play has received many accolades in addition to the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Drama such as, the 2019 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, a feature of the Best of Theatre 2018 Lists from The New York Times, New York Magazine, TIME, The New Yorker, American Theatre, Buzzfeed, Los Angeles Times, and Time Out New York.
