Stick Fly is a terrific production. The cast is marvelous; the story starts slowly and builds to an interesting twist at the end. The set design is perfect; great lighting. All in all, it’s exactly what you want in comedy with a message.
Stick Fly follows the LeVays, an affluent African American family who come together to spend a weekend at their stately Martha’s Vineyard mansion. The adult sons, aspiring novelist Kent and golden boy plastic surgeon Flip, have each brought their respective ladies (one black and one white) to meet the parents. Food, drink and Trivial Pursuit tangle with class, race and identity politics in this contemporary comedy of manners.
