Barbecue Poster


Closed November 11, 2017

Easily one of the funniest plays of the year and one of the most searing appraisals of contemporary culture.


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.
