The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

This world premiere is a beautiful, humor-filled excavation of our shared history.

When Steve Durbin sets out to chart his Black family's ancestry online, his revelations unwittingly throw his entire family into turmoil. Chiefly: his niece, Meg, is forced to consider her relationship with Drew (her white boyfriend) in an unsettling new light. Guided by a hip-hop dance class chorus, this singular American family must find a way to live in a present that's overpopulated with ghosts.

From Oregon Arts Watch:

"In an era where DNA tests and genealogical research have become everyday consumer products, what are the implications for families and (maybe more unsettlingly) for romance? New York-based “writer, actor and library goblin” Brittany K. Allen investigates, in a world-premiere comedy complete with hip-hop dance-class chorus."
