Why See Barbecue?
Launching the 2017/18 season
Playwright and satirist Robert O'Hara is back with this piercingly funny subversion of the American domestic comedy. Ostentatiously about an ill-fated attempt to woo a Crack addicted family member into rehab, Barbeque offers a glimpse of the O'Mallery family, a dysfunctional and raucous group for whom a staged intervention for one only ends up bringing all their problems and vices bubbling to the surface.
Margo Hall directs this Bay Area Premiere of O'Hara's exploration of a fractious family that alongside a surprising twist, offers a cutting portrait of race, class, poverty and how reality T.V culture serves to create, not disperse the stereotypes they sell to the eager audience.
Opening night: 26 September 2017
