About

“An important play of reconciliation… we need this story of interracial friendship even more now.”—Chicago Tribune

Don’t miss this new Kennedy Center production of playwright Evan Linder’s uncompromising exploration of race, family, and betrayal in the American South, which won Chicago’s prestigious Jefferson Award in 2016 for Best New Work. Jim and Laurel Parker are about to become new parents. They are broke. They are loud. They are proud Southerners. 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.

Recommended for age 14 and up.

This event is part of The Human Journey,collaboration between the Kennedy Center, National Geographic Society, and the National Gallery of Art. The Human Journey invites audiences to investigate the powerful experiences of migration, exploration, identity, and resilience through the lenses of the performing arts, science, and visual art.
