If You're Invited to the Cook Out is a full-length stage play.  The story follows Ally Smith, a young African American woman and recent Yale graduate as she returns home to introduce her family to her fiancé. The fiancé, Ethan Wells is white and from a well to do family. His life is complete opposite of Ally's- a native to the Southside of Chicago.  Ally is embarrassed by her family's humble beginnings and rambunctious nature.  Her family is filled with colorful characters, a cousin who doesn't approve of interracial dating, a stern disapproving father who doesn't think anyone is good enough for his daughter and a loud, outspoken grandmother who constantly bickers with the neighbor next door. Will Ally and Ethan survive their first cook out, or will their differences prove to be too much to handle? If You're Invited to the Cookout features Chicago comedian, Just Nesh ( Comedy Central, Kevin Hart Presents The Next Level) Doors open at 6:30 pm. Show starts at 7:00 pm
