Appropriate is, at heart, a ghost story, in the most profound sense.” — The New York Times 

Winner of the 2014-2015 Obie Award for Best New American Play, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ Appropriate, tells the story of the Lafayette clan descending upon the crumbling Arkansas homestead of their newly-dead patriarch. As they sort through a lifetime of hoarded mementos and junk, a disturbing discovery surfaces among their father's possessions, and the reunion takes a turn for the explosive, unleashing a series of crackling surprises and confrontations.
