When Laurel gives birth to their long overdue child, she and Jim are faced with the biggest challenge of their lives. Byhalia, Mississippi explores a couple in the midst of turmoil and a town with a racially-charged past that finds its way into the present. Written by Evan Linder Directed by Ingrid Sonnichsen With: Erika Cuenca, Brandon Meeks, Lamar Cheston, Hope Anthony, and Virginia Wall Gruenerten performances: April 20-21, 26-28, and May 3-5 at 8pm/April 22 & 29 at 3pm
