The play will examine two of America’s most powerful street traditions. The first is the impact of gangs of Los Angeles. The second street tradition is the Nation of Gods and Earths (formally known as the 5% Nation.) These two organizations were geared to influence the youth by establishing self identity and perseverance. Though initiated with good intentions, some members end up living the complete opposite; existing in denial. Five unique characters will seduce your thoughts with dramatic technique simulating sexual confidence and skill. The plot’s literary experimentation is similar to foreplay. Just when you think you’ve reached nirvana, you’re exhausted by multiple climaxes. See, these characters are in love. They’re passionate about love. They’re in love with life and their ambitious pursuit of happiness. They’re also in love for all the right and wrong reasons.
Audiences will see a tight knit cast singing, dancing and acting to this masterpiece of a script. With the exception of newcomer Ja’Lon Wright, stage veterans Tony Paul, Lee White, Minerva Larry and Steve Abrams were all cast members of “Jumping the Broom,” Damiek’s first production in 2003 that received six NAACP nominations.
