Warren Wilson Theatre presents Branden Jacobs-Jenkins Appropriate. This family drama runs November 12, 13 at 7:30pm and 14 at 2:30pm at Kittredge Theatre on the Warren Wilson College campus.
Appropriate explores the story of a troubled family reunited by the death of the patriarch. While cleaning the plantation homestead of their late father, the Lafayette family is haunted by the ghosts of their past. Maintaining peace and selling the property is much harder when new arrivals and old memories seem to appear from thin air. The siblings must confront both their resentment towards each other and the disturbing artifacts found among their fathers things.

The content of the play has already caused controversy on the Warren Wilson College campus,; with some students attempting to discourage participation in the production. According to director Candace Taylor, Appropriate is intended to make you uncomfortable and was chosen for that reason  to cause understanding and empathy, and very possibly, change. Personally, I think this campus is brave enough to face one small story of our (shared) American history.

The play has received a great deal of critical attention; The controversy and discomfort surrounding this production reveal the need for the authentic dialogue and conversations that Appropriate sparks, to that end, Warren Wilson Theatre will be hosting talkbacks with the actors after every performance. We invite you to come see this production and challenge yourself to think more deeply about the haunting consequences of our shared (and shameful) American history and the nature of family itself.

Appropriate explores adult themes.
All performances are open to the public.
