In Barbecue, the O’Mallery family gather in their local park to share some barbecue and straight talk with their sister. They are the kind of family that comes to an intervention armed with a Taser, even though their own downward spirals rival hers. But that’s only the beginning as familial and cultural stereotypes are stripped away. Director Summer L. Williams (Intimate Apparel) will have the audience racing to keep up with all the surprises and reversals in this piercingly funny new play.
