When the patriarch of the Lafayette clan dies, the family is forced to descend upon the crumbling Arkansas homestead to settle accounts. As the three adult children rummage through a mountain of hoarded relics, they spar over a lifetime of junk, past relationship issues, and inherited debts. But when they make a disturbing discovery among their father's possessions, the reunion takes a turn for the volatile, forcing every member to confront their family history and each other.
a thought-provoking whirlwind of explosive surprises and crackling confrontations
“What distinguishes this new entry is the playwright’s gift for drawing his characters into an escalating conflict and sustaining, with humor and craft, our curiosity…” -The Washington Post
