The play "Appropriate," begins when every estranged member of the Lafayette clan descends upon the crumbling Arkansas homestead to settle the accounts of the newly-dead patriarch. As his three adult children sort through a lifetime of hoarded mementos and junk, they collide over clutter, debt and a contentious family history. But after a disturbing discovery surfaces among their father's possessions, the reunion takes a turn for the explosive, unleashing a series of crackling surprises and confrontations.
Luther's production of "Appropriate" is directed by Robert Vrtis, Luther assistant professor of theatre. He received his Ph.D. and master's degrees in theatre from the University of Oregon and his bachelor's degree from Longwood University.
The production contains scenes of violence, adult language and sexual and racial situations.
