Wendy MacLeod’s macabre black comedy The House of Yes is set on Thanksgiving, 1983. As a violent hurricane swirls outside the Pascal’s Kennedy estate-adjacent home in McLean, VA, the storm of the century — brewing since JFK’s assassination — is about to erupt inside. Mrs. Pascal, daughter Jackie-O and younger son Anthony await the arrival of Jackie’s twin brother for the holiday.
But when Marty brings along his new fiancée, the family’s elegant veneer begins to crack. The House of Yes reminds us that we all have our secrets, some families just have more than others.
