New Drama LINES IN THE DUST Set for Spring Run at Celebration Arts Theatre
A new drama by Nikkole Salter, LINES IN THE DUST, will play Celebration Arts Theatre this spring.
A black mother's desire to assure her daughter escapes life's tragic results from a poor education schemes to get the girl into a "good" school. That school is predominately white, in another school district, and is helmed by an interim principal who is a well-educated black woman. The mother finesses the principal into the effort but that relationship is rocked when a private investigator, hired by the school board to seek out "border hoppers", implicates the principal in a scheme to keep the young girl in the school illegally.
The play features the acting talents of Tammie Denyce, Darlene Tellis and Sean Williams.
