Portland Playhouse is currently performing the play about two neighboring couples who hold a barbecue. Written in 2009, it’s a snapshot of America in tough economic times; one pair of neighbors hasn’t a lick of furniture in their house. The play is littered with naughty humor and irreverent dialogue — hardly five minutes go by without some form of vulgarity — but at its core, it’s a dark commentary on what may be a new, pared-down American dream.
