Playwright Colman Domingo (Selma, Fear the Walking Dead) chose a tough subject for his 2016 comedy: the holiday family gathering where everyone knows next year is going to be different, because this one already is. The title character, the family matriarch, is in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease, and her boomer-generation children are struggling—and failing, for the most part—to cope with that transition, on top of their own passages from young adulthood to middle age. How long can boomerang baby Averie crash in the bedroom downstairs as she clings to her dreams of YouTube stardom? Why did Donnie bring his white husband, Adam, along, when they're clearly on the rocks? And how much longer can Shelly, a responsible daughter, take care of Dot and keep this West Philadelphia clan from flying apart? Nicole Watson directs a cast led by veteran actors Kathryn Hunter-Williams and Rasool Jahan. —Byron Woods
