An Appropriate win! Appropriate has won the 2024 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play. The absolutely brilliant play written by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins beat out fellow nominees Purlie Victorious: A Non-Confederate Romp Through the Cotton Patch and An Enemy of the People.

It’s summer, the cicadas are singing, and the Lafayette family has returned to their late patriarch’s Arkansas home to deal with the remains of his estate. Toni, the eldest daughter, hopes they’ll spend the weekend remembering and reconnecting over their beloved father. Bo, her brother, wants to recoup some of the funds he spent caring for Dad at the end of his life. But things take a turn when their estranged brother, Franz, appears late one night, and mysterious objects are discovered among the clutter. Suddenly, long-hidden secrets and buried resentments can’t be contained, and the family is forced to face the ghosts of their past.

Appropriate was nominated for a total of eight tony nominations including Best Revival of a Play, Best Actress in a Play for Sarah Paulson, Best Featured Actor in a Play for Corey Stoll, Best Direction of a Play, Best Scenic Design of a Play, Best Costume Design of a Play, Best Lighting Design of a Play, Best Sound Design of a Play.
