off the WALL Productions Closes Their Season With BYHALIA, MISSISSIPPI

off the WALL productions closes their 2017-18 season with the regional premiere of Byhalia, Mississippi. Previously staged by Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre Company, Evan Linder's funny and moving salute to both down-home decency and a troubled couple living in a see-through shack is a bittersweet story about love, class, race, family, and forgiveness.

Jim and Laurel Parker are about to become new parents. They are broke. They are loud. They are "proud white trash." 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.
