Chelle, an artist, has recently purchased her childhood home in Baltimore; her brother Willard is working on refurbishing it. But the home renovation takes a backseat as Willard prepares for a Juneteenth festival in the adjacent park and Chelle struggles with a recent commission: What should be built in place of a recently removed Confederate monument? An eyesore. And an opportunity.

Why we love it: “This play nails the difficult task of being wildly funny and thought-provoking, with three fantastic characters bringing the topical story to life. We're incredibly excited to introduce Austin to this piece and Mr. Thomas' work.” – Austin Playhouse
