Written by Lydia R. Diamond | Directed by Ron OJ Parson.

What begins as a relaxing summer weekend on Martha’s Vineyard escalates when the LeVay brothers bring their new girlfriends home to meet their affluent and imposing parents. But even as the newcomers find themselves under familial scrutiny, long-hidden family tensions bubble to the surface and by the end of the weekend, almost everyone at the Vineyard finds themselves under a microscope as they grapple with arguments about class, race and cultural expectations.

Lydia R. Diamond (SMART PEOPLE) brings her gift for sharp dialogue, complex characters and relevant themes back to WT with this timely look at African-American elite aristocracy, social assumptions, and family dynamics. Directed by WT Resident Director Ron OJ Parson (MA RAINEY’S BLACK BOTTOM, EAST TEXAS HOT LINKS), this bitingly funny comedy is sure to keep you talking long after the lights have come up.
