More Information


In One Woman Two Lives the strikingly beautiful Kellita Smith portrays Samantha Cooke, a complex and conflicted woman fighting to sustain and protect her family from a past that threatens to undermine her almost perfect present.  Married to Jonathan, a successful mega preacher, portrayed by an equally talented Keith Bossier (The Young and the Restless), Samantha has been voted First Lady of the Year.  However, the accolade causes the mother of three to doubt herself. In spite of receiving encouragement from her family and neighbors, Samantha can’t seem to shake the uneasiness that has begun to envelop her.  As the play takes on surprising and startling twists and turns, her doubts and worries unfortunately become warranted.

Three time NAACP Best Director Image Award recipient Denise Dowse elicits beautiful and memorable performances from this ensemble cast which also stars veteran and award winning actors Esther Scott (You Got Served, Dreamgirls, The Geena Davis Show_) who plays the outspoken mother-in-law Edna and Billy Mayo (_Desperate Housewives, The Traveler) who plays a deliciously duplicitous Melvin Foster, along with neighbors Michael and Belinda Grey portrayed by Sammie Wayne and Sharon Munfus.
