Byhalia, Missississippi

Synopsis:
Jim and Laurel Parker are about to become new parents. They are broke. They are loud. They are "proud white trash." After the birth of their long overdue child, the couple and their community are faced with a surprise that challenges everything they believe in. A contemporary southern drama that explores a couple in turmoil, and a town stuck in a racially-charged past, both struggling to find a way into the present. This quirky, heartfelt, domestic drama tackles issues of class, race, family, faithfulness, and forgiveness with compassion and intelligence. Where do you draw the line on betrayal? How forgiving can you be?

Warriors, The

Synopsis:
At 12 years old, Chicago actress Mary Hollis Inboden survived the Westside Middle School massacre, one of the most shocking events of the 90s. But who writes history when nobody's the victor? In an honest and irreverent homecoming that mixes fact, fiction, identity, and history, Mary Hollis recruits an ensemble of her former classmates to help capture their stories, not of the tragic event that unites them, but of the daily battles and triumphs that define their present.

Notes:
by Evan Linder; conceived by Mary Hollis Inboden; with contributions by Sarah Gitenstein, Wes Needham, Whit Nelson, Nicole Pellegrino and Michael Peters
