A radical examination of power.

The Frasier family are getting ready for Grandma’s birthday party but things keep going wrong. Beverly wants everything to be perfect, but Jasmine won’t help, Dayton is more interested in the game, Tyrone is MIA, and Keisha—well, Keisha is just a teenager. What starts as a funny suburban comedy about a middle-class black family, a setup straight from a sitcom, escalates into what The New York Times calls “a series of perspective-altering surprises”.

From The Search Party—producer of the critically acclaimed and multi-award winning shows Stupid F*cking Bird, The Father, and Bunny—comes the Western Canadian premiere of Jackie Sibblies Drury’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama.

Written by Jackie Sibblies Drury
Co-Directed by Kwaku Okyere and Mindy Parfitt
