I want to take this opportunity to tell you about a new play “SEED” by Radha Blank. We often speak about wanting to see something written and performed by us for us, stories told with our own voices. Well here is an opportunity to see and hear just that. Please take a moment to review the following information and come out and support this piece. Purchase your tickets in advance, tell your friends, post to your social network sites and let’s be called to action. There are several projects that I will be blasting in the next couple of weeks but here is a great place to start. See you all behind the lights
“SEED” A New Play by Radha Blank
Directed by Niegel Smith
Burnt-out social worker Anne Colleen Simpson decides to leave the field on a high note, with a book detailing her career, but when Chee-Chee, a gifted twelve-year-old from the ‘projects’ collides into her life, she’s forced to confront his young mother and the shadows of her past. Anne and Chee-Chee develop an unlikely friendship that leads to an explosive encounter threatening both their futures.
Infused with the vibrant rhythm and verse of Hip-Hop culture, Seed weaves through the fault lines of a gentrified Harlem, begging the question: How far are you willing to go to protect the future of a community and its children?
