North Carolina has been in the news a lot lately. Some say it no longer qualifies as a democracy. Most have heard about its views on discrimination and its infamous "bathroom law." But lurking just beneath the surface are its outdated family laws. Going South examines the legal, social and emotional ramifications of getting divorced in the 21st Century American South. New York Theatre Barn previously developed Stanislavskaya's Resident Alien, a new musical about a Russian family's struggle with the American dream.
