. Eric Bogosian's family drama takes place at a backyard barbecue on the Fourth of July. With a gathering that includes a heroin-addled artist, a former bathing-suit model, and a mysterious uncle, it's only a matter of time before things take a sinister turn. Also in the mix are a plastic-surgery-loving wife, a workaholic son, and a protagonist who's about to celebrate his 50th birthday with his dysfunctional family. Expect plenty of fireworks at this gathering.
Sundays, 3 p.m.; July 6-8, 8 p.m. Starts: July 2. Continues through July 9
