The production marks Jacobs-Jenkins' Broadway playwriting debut, following a credit in 2022 for contributing additional material to Lincoln Center Theater's revival of Thornton Wilder's The Skin of Our Teeth. Lila Neugebauer is directing.

The work centers on a white family who, while closing out the estate of their late father, discover some disturbing artifacts that force them to confront their family's past. The play was previously produced in 2014 Off-Broadway at Signature Theatre.

The Broadway run features scenic design by dots, costume design by Dede Ayite, lighting design by Jane Cox, and sound design by Will Pickens and Bray Poor. The production's fight director is Unkledave's Fight House, the vocal coach is Kate Wilson, the production stage manager is Barclay Stiff, and the stage manager is Kelly Levy. Casting is by Jim Carnahan and Alexandre Bleau.
