The story follows Jeff Browning, a new father who gets an unsettling surprise after taking an ancestry test as part of his initiation into a white supremacist group.   Playwright Chisa Hutchinson, a Newark native, became affiliated with SLAC this season with her play SURELY GOONESS AND MERCY running now in the Chapel Theatre.
