In war-torn Congo, Mama Nadi keeps the peace between customers on both sides of the civil war by serving everything from cold beers to warm beds. This shrewd matriarch both protects and profits from the women whose bodies have become battlegrounds ďruinedĒ by the brutality of government soldiers and rebel forces alike. Inspired by interviews conducted in Africa, this searing play is an engrossing and uncommonly human story told with humor and song, revealing the immeasurable loss and hopelessness of war, yet finding affirmation in life and hope.

New Children's Book by Arlene Brown is Released
by BWW News Desk - Oct 14, 2016

A stunning wedding collar made from luxurious leather and diamonds has gone missing, and it's up to a doggie detective duo to find out what happened before the special event is Ruined. They're under the gun because they only have three days to do so. A new children's book released by Dog Ear Publishing follows the story of the canine sleuths who are on the case. When Monique Potter, a poodle, discovers her collar missing from her nightstand, she can't stop crying because she hoped to wear it during her wedding three days later. Although her parents call the German shepherd police, they also place a call to a special detective agency run by Bradley and Mr. Quick, dogs who they hope can find the stolen collar quickly. The detectives - and the police - don't know the necklace was taken by Dollar and his partner Cash, who had been engaged to Monique until she broke it off to become acquainted with Edward, who she said 'Yes' to a year later. Cash claims he took the collar just to tell Monique to delay her wedding, but once a con dog, always a con dog. Can Bradley and Mr. Quick find the collar in time or will the Potters be forced to delay the ceremony their daughter has always dreamed of? 'Bradley and Mr. Quick the Canine Duo: In Search of the Wedding Collar,' a short chapter book, is full of colorful canine characters from an eavesdropping alley cat to beautiful waitresses, impatient fathers and crusty bulldog witnesses. Readers step into the world of doggie detectives with a front-row seat to the action and adventure. Author Arlene Brown has been interested in writing since 1987 but life and time were not on her side until her retirement in 2010. She worked for Horizon Air starting in 1998 as a special service agent, dispatcher for the special service team, on the floor and as a baggage handler and handling aircrafts. Brown received training in writing television and radio ads starting in 1991 at the Connecticut School of Broadcasting in Bellevue, Wash., as well as training for voiceover work and being a disc jockey. She worked on her portfolio of commercials and edited and prepared manuscripts for writers in Seattle before joining the airline. Brown is looking forward to writing now that she has the time to do so.
