Written by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, Appropriate is a newer family drama that focuses on the dysfunctional Lafayette family when they come together to sell their dead father’s estate and discover a disturbing photo album full of pictures of dead black people. The director felt it was important to keep the play in its original period, 2011, while also emphasizing the contrast between the different siblings and their families, as well as playing with the title’s double meaning. Each sibling was to represent their geographical location through the style, texture, and color of how they dressed.
