With music by Ray Leslee, and book and lyrics by Philip S. Goodman, the show, set in rural Mississippi just after World War II, centers on a poor sharecropper, who unlike his neighbors who have been leaving and going north in droves, has decided to stay put. When he finds out that his wife is pregnant, he decides to fulfill a dream -- to fix up and put fresh white paint on his shabby little tenant house, a decision that has unexpected repercussions.
