The affluent, African-American LeVay family is gathering at their Martha’s Vineyard home for the weekend, and brothers Kent and Flip have each brought their respective ladies home to meet the parents for the first time. Kent’s fiancée, Taylor, an academic whose absent father was a prominent author, struggles to fit into the LeVay’s upper-crust lifestyle. Kimber, on the other hand, is a self-described WASP who works with inner-city school children, fits in more easily with the family. Joining these two couples are the demanding LeVay patriarch, Joe, and Cheryl, the daughter of the family’s longtime housekeeper. As the two newcomers butt heads over issues of race and privilege, long-standing family tensions bubble under the surface and reach a boiling point when secrets are revealed.

Anyone who has participated in CBI’s Equity Impact Circles knows that we examine collectively the importance of Stories, Resources, and Rules in our society and how these impact People. Three Bone Theatre also does this with their newest season of theatre productions. Season 11 gathers four powerful and thrilling pieces of award-winning contemporary theatre that examine the concept of the American Dream.
The selected stories, fact and fiction, shine a light on marginalized communities who fight against all odds to try and reach the opportunity and comfort that has been promised to them over the last 200 years.
These four shows question who has access to the American Dream and help us reimagine a new dream, one that is truly inclusive and accessible to everyone.
