Even the Martha's Vineyard mansion of the LeVay family can barely contain all the drama and humor of Stick Fly. Bringing your new girlfriend home to meet mom and dad is always stressful, but brothers Kent and Flip must navigate dizzying parental expectations, intense sibling rivalry and issues of class and race ... with some life-altering surprises thrown in for good measure. In this richly painted portrait of an affluent African-American family, secrets are always lurking just outside the gilded frame. Now, Celebration Arts in Sacramento stages this witty powder keg of a play from acclaimed playwright Lydia R. Diamond (The Bluest Eye).
