And you thought you were nervous about meeting your partner's family...
On a trip to meet his (white) girlfriend's parents in their affluent suburb, Chris Washington reads the familyʼs over-accommodating behavior as an awkward attempt to deal with their daughterʼs interracial relationship. But as the weekend progresses, and after a series of disturbing discoveries, Chris realizes that just because youʼre invited doesn't mean you're welcome. Composer Michael Abels conducts his disconcerting “gospel horror” original score, performed live by the LA Opera Orchestra and the amazing DC6 Singers (the performers heard on the soundtrack).
Tickets available as an add-on to a Spring 2021 subscription package.
"Loads of atmospheric dread coupled with the constant feeling of claustrophobia. It’s a very compelling score."
