Article Pixel

Camilla Crawford, New York Film Academy graduate and South African actress, writer, director and producer, at the mere age of 22 has brought her talents abroad in order to present her original one-act play, one-act cabaret, A Philosophical Protest, at the West End Lounge in New York City on October 7th and 8th.

The production will be focusing on various social issues in our society, such as the struggles of the LGQBT community, bullying, homelessness, religion, God, depression, love, and essentially the concept of how we are all connected. The moral of the play, simply put, is that if you seek help you will receive it. Ms. Crawford's goal with this production is to generate change, spread compassion and give the audience a new perspective on various issues in our society.

The first act of the up-coming production will be the one act play. A heartfelt dramedy, the synopsis of A Philosophical Protest revolves around a stereotypical businessman who happens upon a beautiful woman named Phoebe, currently in the mist of experiencing a break-down on the curb of a New York City side-walk while she begins to stage a protest against God. After a short interaction, Phoebe convinces the man to protest with her. They begin to discuss love, loss, depression, God and the struggles of simply being alive. However, we find light at the end of the tunnel when Man (also known as Mr. Abbatelli) reminds Phoebe that things are not as bad as they seem. Secrets are revealed and a beautiful friendship is formed. Is their timely meeting a coincidence? You decide.

The second act completes the show with a one act Cabaret.. All performers will be singing cover songs as well as original pieces related to the above theme and will include a opening and closing number.

Overall, the production will be a beautiful revelation of how connected we all are, how important it is to have compassion, and how wonderful life can truly be when we all come together.

The cast includes Camilla Crawford, Shea Madison, Brent Hampson, KT Thomas, Mariana Bravo, Nat Kuri, Rev. Yolanda Roger Anthony Mapes, Kolt Free and Eric Sorrels, with accompaniment by Eric Sorrels and assistant direction by Mary-Anne Wright.

Tickets to the production are available at Pre-sale tickets are a mere $8.
