In this hilarious and devastating dark comedy by Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, Antebellum), the pill-popping, chain-smoking, whiskey-swilling and foul-mouthed O’Mallerys have gathered in their local park to share some barbecue and straight talk with their trainwreck of a sister Barbara, whose spiral of drugs and recklessness has forced her siblings to stage an open-air intervention. When the story twists to reveal two parallel families – one white, one black – the event becomes raucous and unpredictable, as racial politics collide with family stereotypes, survival, and America’s fascination with self-destruction as entertainment.
