World Premiere! A suburban couple hosts a welcome-to-the-neighborhood dinner party for their new neighbors — a couple recently relocated from Cabrini Green, Chicago’s roughest housing project — and it’s anything but welcoming. A dark comedy about reverse gentrification and how we deal with the “other” when the other looks just like us.
