After ten years, Sheldon (ROCKMOND DUNBAR) returns from New York City to Paris, Georgia. His mother Evelyn (LORETTA DEVINE), a laundress who is stubborn, ornery and inflexible, has sent a ten-year-old boy who claims to be Sheldon's son up to see him. When Sheldon comes home to straighten things out, old arguments flare up between mother and son. Sheldon wants no part of fatherhood or family. Then, someone else from New York shows up at Evelyn's door, bringing a new set of challenges. Will this family ever stop airing its dirty laundry?

Nathan and Gail Edwards, a young, newly-wed black couple, have everything but the truth. In their community, a black man can be many things and still find some level of acceptance; he cannot however, be gay. When Nathan reveals to Gail that he is gay, there are far-reaching implications that neither one of them could predict. Staged reading coordinated by actor/director Akin Babatunde.
