OBIE AWARD: BEST NEW AMERICAN PLAY
HOUSTON PREMIERE

The estranged members of the Lafayette clan have returned to Arkansas and their crumbling old plantation home to settle the accounts of their recently deceased patriarch. As they sort through a lifetime of hoarded mementos and junk, the discovery of a gruesome relic and a surprise visitor send the family into a spiral of explosive confrontations, repressed histories, and regret.
