ABOUT THE SHOW

Going South sheds a light on North Carolina’s legal system by focusing on four cases tried on the same docket. The cases—Custody, Cake, Co-Eds, and Coco—examine divorce, discrimination, campus rape, and transgender issues, respectively. These stories are linked together by Bob Jones, a smarmy and charismatic Southern lawyer. Told alternately in the courtroom and in flashback, the musical challenges the political, social, and societal constructs of today’s American South.
