Jim and Laurel Parker are broke, loud and -- in their own words -- "proud white trash." They're also about to become new parents. But when Laurel gives birth to their child, they're both shocked to discover their baby boy is black, the result of Laurel's affair the previous year. The lives of Jim and Laurel's families and friends are thrown into turmoil in Byhalia, Mississippi, a town with a racially charged past that still affects its present. This thought-provoking new play is presented by The New Colony and Definition Theatre Company at Chicago's The Den Theatre.
