November 4 to December 18, 2005
Written by T. R. Riggins

Otis & Zora is a compelling drama about a grieving couple guilt-ridden over the loss of their child. But through the courageous act of a friend, they find healing and redemption and experience joy again. An uplifting, heartwarming drama for teens and up.

Storm Stories

Storm Stories

February 23 to March 26, 2006
Written by Judi Ann Mason
Directed by Marjorie Moon

Stark, chilling, disturbing yet triumphant and victorious personal stories from those caught in the midst and aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Contains some harsh, profane language, yet a must-see.

Featuring: Jackie Alexander • Omari Ali • Yaa Asantewa
Natanya Hamilton • Zeb Hollins III • Kerisse Hutchinson
Jaymes Jorsling • Nathan Purdee • Jaharee Robinson
Jonathan Shadrach • Valarie Tekosky • Kara M. Tyler

Third Show of Season

Love & Marriage & New York City

Love and Marriage and New York City
April 27 to June 25, 2006
Written by David Heron
Directed by Woodie King, Jr.

"Marriage in the city within the West Indian immigrant community was the hilarious subject of Love and Marriage and New York City, a production written by David Heron, who also starred in the show at the Billie Holiday Theatre."
—Linda Armstrong, Amsterdam News

Sometimes the best laid plans go awry as is the case of two Jamaican-born couples who marry strictly for green card purposes, only to discover that marriage is never purely about business. A delightfully engaging romantic comedy for teens and up.

Featuring: Nixon Cesar • David Heron
Candice McKoy • Janel C. Scarborough
