Hillary Jordan's mesmerizing debut novel won the Bellwether Prize for fiction. A powerful piece of Southern literature, Mudbound takes on prejudice in its myriad forms on a Mississippi Delta farm in 1946. City girl Laura McAllen attempts to raise her family despite questionable decisions made by her husband. Tensions continue to rise when her brother-in-law and the son of a family of sharecroppers both return from WWII as changed men bearing the scars of combat.

Professional reviews

"Six actors narrate Jordan's Bellwether Prize-winning novel, delivering a top-notch performance. Kate Forbes shines brightest as Laura McAllan, who is uprooted from her urban life in Memphis when her husband purchases a farm in Mississippi. The actors in the production are particularly skilled at using their voices to reflect the nuances of power, race, gender, and the struggle to survive. The only low note is Brenda Pressley's turn as Florence, a worker on the McAllan's farm. Jordan describes Florence as a woman of preternatural strength, yet her voice doesn't reflect that. Otherwise, every actor feels starkly real in this production, creating a vivid listening experience that depicts the ravages of oppression.
