Show Description:
The affluent, African-American LeVay family is gathering at their Martha's Vineyard home for the weekend, and brothers Kent and Flip have each brought their respective ladies home to meet the parents for the first time. As the two newcomers butt heads over issues of race and privilege, longstanding family tensions bubble under the surface and reach a boiling point when secrets are revealed.

KENT (SPOON) - 31, African-American; youngest son of the LeVay family; has grown up with an artistic disposition in a family of doctors and lawyers

TAYLOR - 27, African-American; daughter from an earlier marriage of renowned, recently deceased, public intellectual, James Bradley Scott; was raised by a single mother college professor

CHERYL - 18, African-American; the daughter of the family maid; pretty, bright, always well-intentioned; has always had a crush on Flip

FLIP - 36, African-American; oldest son of LeVay family; the "golden boy" who, with some compromises, has fallen in line with his father's expectations; an incorrigible ladies man

JOE LEVAY (DAD) - 58, African-American; LeVay patriarch; a well-intentioned man, who rules his family with a firm, loving hand; has always had a way with women

KIMBER - 32, Caucasian; is an intelligent woman with a quick wit and sincere warmth; her social status matches that of the LeVays, with of course, the undeniable privilege of whiteness - of this she is aware, and on some level appalled
