A young African-American carpenter wanders into an early 1900s Southern town where black people are prohibited after sundown; his friendship with a blind Confederate veteran confronts the conventions and beliefs of the community and the church, and uproots a sympathetic family. This musical play stares unblinkingly at a dark corner of American history through fascinating characters who tell their stories through a well-crafted drama, which features a driving musical score built around traditional instrumentals and songs of the era.
