I’ve been pretty busy lately and unable to keep up with correspondence due to the fact that I’ve been collaborating on a play with Broadway playwright (No Crystal Stair) Pressley Giles, Jr., on a play called Positively Resilient. The play deals with the HIV/AIDS epidemic as it stands today, in hopes of bringing knowledge to a burgeoning population of newly infected people.
It has been a thrill to create characters that address the issues surrounding an epidemic that is now in its third decade with only the slimmest hope on the horizon for a cure. It’s our desire that the play will bring about new discussions of what has become an old problem.
This upcoming Saturday we will be auditioning actors and actresses at Montrose Counseling Center, one of our sponsors, and are looking to mid-March as our first performance date. I will keep you posted as I learn more about our schedule.
