Rich Relations is David Hwang’s second play about evangelical Christianity and his first with a white, not Asian, cast. The play centers on a wealthy, materialistic, evangelical Christian family, the Orrs, who live in L.A. Hinson, the father, is a real estate baron. Keith, his son, is a high-school teacher on the East Coast who has fled back to L.A. with his 16-year-old student/girlfriend, Jill. Hinson’s sister, Barbara, meanwhile, wants Keith to marry her daughter. When Keith refuses, Barbara goes out on the balcony and threatens to jump. When Jill joins her, many family secrets are revealed.
