Magnolia by ReGina Taylor and directed by Anna D. Shapiro opened March 14 and plays to April 19 at Goodman Theater.

Atlanta, 1963. As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. inspires Atlanta's black citizens to fight passionately for their civil rights, the new mayor erects "The Payton Wall" to restrict where they can live. Amid these churning social currents, Magnolia Estate faces foreclosure, pitting the sensual, free-spirited heiress Lily Forrest against Thomas, a strong-willed businessman who lays claim to the estate where his ancestors were slaves. As we welcome the first African American president into the White House, this poignant and timely world premiere by ReGina Taylor reminds us how much of Dr. King's dream has been realized-and how much is yet to be achieved. Directed by Anna D. Shapiro, the Tony Award-winning director of August: Osage County.
