WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A tide of social change is shifting the southern landscape of 1963 Atlanta--the Peyton Wall divides blacks from whites, protests and sit-ins entreat personal freedom, and the 40-acre Magnolia Estate faces foreclosure. Lilly, an outspoken, sensual free spirit, returns home to try and save her inheritance; Thomas, an intelligent, strong-willed businessman--whose family was slaves on the estate--has a plan for its salvation. Each born of and bound by the Estate, Lily and Thomas now find themselves at odds for ownership, wrestling with the shadows of their buried past: one clinging to innocence, the other avenging the place where innocence was torn apart. A haunting world premiere by Regina Taylor, Magnolia asks whether control is lost or gained in the deeply-rooted bargain for self.
