Oni Faida Lampley's TOUGH TITTY to Run 4/23-5/11 at Paradise Factory
The New York premiere of the late award-winning playwright Oni Faida Lampley's play Tough Titty, a poignant and funny exploration of what comes next for a Brooklyn mother diagnosed with breast cancer, will be presented next month by actress/producer Ami Brabson (Homicide: Life on the Street, Law & Order: SVU, Damages) & her husband, Emmy and Obie Award-winning actor Andre Braugher (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Homicide: Life on the Street, Law & Order, Glory, City of Angels). Lydia Fort will direct. The play premiered at the Williamstown Theatre Festival and made Lampley a finalist for the Susan Smith Blackburn Award.
The NYC production will run from April 23-May 11 at the Paradise Factory in the East Village (64 East 4th Street) and the cast will feature Broadway veterans Christine Toy Johnson (The Music Man and Grease), Antoinette LaVecchia (A View from the Bridge) & Richard Topol (The Normal Heart, The Merchant of Venice) and Victor Williams (The King of Queens), Nikkole Salter (Inked Baby at Playwrights Horizons), Elizabeth Van Dyke (Flyin' West) and Ami Brabson.
In Tough Titty, a woman's breast cancer diagnosis propels her on a journey of self-discovery... When Angela's routine cannot keep breast cancer at bay, she must learn to face the disease, her family and her community with equal doses of tenacity and humor. Richly emotional, Tough Titty is a boisterous exploration of one woman's willful search for grace.
