“An astute and poignant reflection on sexuality, mortality and Black masculinity. Did I mention it’s also a comedy?”

NAVEEN KUMAR, THE NEW YORK TIMES

“There is an undeniable pleasure in watching the tensions in this unusual family surge and subside.”

CHARLES ISHERWOOD, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

“90 minutes of provocative (and hilarious) theater.” 

PETE HEMPSTEAD, THEATERMANIA 

 

New York’s newest triumph is the Off-Broadway sensation that brings three generations of Black, gay men together under one roof—along with all the love, conflict, and connection they share. This New York Times Critic’s Pick tackles the truths of family, pride, identity that bind and bruise fathers and sons. The Times says, “It’s everything that is meant when we say Black lives matter.”

Running time: 1 hour and 30 minutes, no intermission.
