I keep missing opportunities to visit Rolfe Square. First the Benny’s closed, now Epic Theatre Company’s production of Robert O’Hara’s recent hit Barbecue. I’m also overdue for a Sonia’s run – do you know they have feta for $4.99 a pound?! – but that’s neither here nor there. Barbecue deals with two families hatching a half-baked scheme to lure their substance-addled sister into an Alaskan rehab facility. One is a poor white family and the other is a poor black family. Oh, and they’re the same family. As if that’s not enough, the play’s second half apparently shakes things up with a surprise so important that no drama critic can write about it for fear of spoiling it. Epic’s staging their Tammy Brown directed version outdoors, so dress appropriately.
