Presented by the Huntington Theatre Company
When an upwardly mobile African-American family wants to buy a house in an all-white neighborhood of 1950s Boston, they pay a struggling Irish family to act as their front. Fifty years later, the Irish family asks for "their" house back. Moving across the two eras, this intimate new play explores personal stories of integration and the conflict of calling any place your home.
