This looks like one hell of a collaboration. Some of the most talented, hardest-working playwrights in the city—Holly Arsenault, Kelleen C. Blanchard, Tré Calhoun, Vincent Delaney, Brendan Healy, Maggie Lee, Sara Porkalob, and Seayoung Yim—all contributed to the script of this Pony World Theatre production about "a quaint little neighborhood called the United States of America." The play features a group of people with diverse interests trying to talk sexual and racial politics at a barbecue. Shit gets tense and awkward—and at one point, a woman confesses to treating her daughter as a chicken.
