Playwright Andrea J. Fulton announces performances of two excerpts from her play "One Drop," in which an exceptional multi-cultural cast portrays the truth-based story of a mulatto in Louisiana in the 1800s. Power, control, love, faith and fear collide as he chooses whether or not to "pass," calling into question not only his values and loyalties, but also those of everyone he encounters. Original songs lend authenticity to a story told with honesty, humor and humanity. Two scenes from this moving work will be shown: Scene 4 on the hour, and Scene 7 on the half-hour throughout the day. Allen Craig Harris directs a cast that features Kymbali Craig, Ilona S. Dixon, Denise Fair Grant, Gary E. Lawson, Sam Soghor, DaisyLee H. Sprauve, and Jason Stein.
STooPS BED-STUY FESTIVAL is a community-building event that will use the arts to welcome people to Bed-Stuy and promote social interaction among artists, homeowners, residents and local businesses. Various Bed-Stuy homeowners will collaborate with local artists to host mini-performances and art showcases on their stoops, yards and sidewalks. Local vendors, businesses and organizations will also bring folks together for the purpose of mingling, seeing the wares of participating vendors, and possibly win goodie bags filled with complimentary items.More about playwright Andrea J.
