Greetings! Here's a bit of an update on what I've been working on lately...
My current project is The Secret Life of Wonder: a prologue in G by T.S. Hawkins. It's a brand new play, part of Mz. Fest hosted by Plays & Players.
"The Secret Life of Wonder: a prologue in G journeys through the lives of seven girls being escorted into womanhood. Embracing multiple levels of play, the girls teach one another ways to interact with the world at large. Using poetic dialogue, these girls introduce that their similarities expand beyond their assigned genders while exploring how their differences bring them together. Positioning itself as a foreshadowing to Ntozake Shange’s work “for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf”, The Secret Life of Wonder: a prologue in G highlights the embryonic spark of when all girls gather; soothing one’s aches, sorting each one’s puzzles, and sharing one’s triumphs with her chosen collective."
It's been an amazing journey to work with my cast mates, the director, and the playwright! We run through April 5th, 2015.
