Immediate Family, a biting new comedy, explores evolving ideas of marriage and family. The Bryant family reunion takes a comedic turn when the middle son brings home his Swedish boyfriend and tosses him into a stew of family dysfunction. Race, sexuality and religion are on the menu as Modern Family meets Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner in this “timely and important American play” (Chicago Tribune).
