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.

“[Wiley’s] shows are sophisticated blends of narrative and wit.”
“You will find hardly anyone who has the muse sitting with them more than Laurelyn.”
