By Mike Wiley
Music & lyrics by Laurelyn Dossett

Directed by Vivienne Benesch

a North Carolina fable for today

Acclaimed playwright Mike Wiley returns to PlayMakers with singer-songwriter Laurelyn Dossett to explore, through words and music, the cyclical nature of human behavior. A story of racial tension, immigration, and economic crisis in a small North Carolina town—this unearthing of yesterday yields a hopeful hymn for our future.
