Levi Green has just found out that his father's church is to be torn down. Now, after 13 years away from his hometown and his Bible-wielding pastor father, Levi's headed back home. Confronting his father about his unpermissive parenting and the many secrets left untold about Levi's mother, this trip home is rife with the strain of some much-needed conscience cleansing. Will Levi and his father be able to come to terms with who they are to each other, or will the tension of this showdown forever tear them apart? Paris Crayton III's drama stars Taurean Blacque, an Emmy nominee for his work on Hill Street Blues. Learn More

The actors and the director of the New African Grove Theatre Company did justice to August Wilson's Gem of the Ocean. A very good quality production. The scenery and lighting accented the both simplicity and the depth of the play's messages which are still relevant today. Typical of August Wilson, the play was lengthy and at times the character's dialogs too long, yet that is due to the playwright and not the director. I would encourage the actors to speak up a little louder and/or have the volume of the acoustics increased because at times the dialog was lost.
