THE LAST BARBECUE

OVERVIEW
An audacious and dark comedy about a ten-year reunion of a son's high school graduation that coincides with the one-year anniversary of the next-door neighbor's death. The Last Barbecue takes a look at what's cooking in a nice "normal" family's backyard on any given Sunday.

QUOTES, AWARDS & REVIEWS
• JEFF RECOMMENDED!

“Neveu is lucky that his play landed in the hands of a director as capable as Ann Filmer…she makes the most of Neveu’s script, turning every pause into a chance for drama…The Last Barbecue contains some of the most beautiful, pregnant, well-orchestrated pauses this side of Harold Pinter…The superb cast deliver nuanced performances…Highly Recommended
Jack Helbig, Chicago Reader
