Horse Trade and Moonlight Theatre Productions to Present MOTHERS at The Kraine, 5/12
Horse Trade Theater Group in association with Moonlight Theatre Productions will present a special one-night only celebration of mothers of all ethnic backgrounds, with drama, storytelling, music, and song. The evening will feature Watching by Kelley Girod (Executive Producer of The Fire This Time Festival) about a Creole mother in Louisiana, with the one and only Lynda Gravatt (2004 Helen Hayes Outstanding Supporting Actress Award for Crowns) and Nathan James, directed by Kevin R. Free, and My Mother's Funeral, a dramatic monologue by Israela Margalit (Gold Medal NY Film/TV Festival) about her Jewish mother, with the formidable Lila Donnolo, directed by John-Martin Green. The show will also feature music for Mother's Day performed by the brilliant violinist Asi Matathias, the award-winning composer/keyboard player Oran Eldor (Rokem Composition Award) and contralto Marie-Claire (NAACP Honor for Talent and Inspiration).
