Sexy Dirt Productions Announces ARMATURE Benefit Reading Featuring Tamara Tunie

New York City-based Sexy Dirt Productions presents Tamara Tunie, Chad L. Coleman, Ryan Cooper, and Kara Young in a one night only benefit reading of Andrew Kramer's ARMATURE, a political, sexual thriller.

All proceeds at this BENEFIT READING will be donated to NEW GEORGIA PROJECT, a nonprofit dedicated to helping people of color register to vote, founded with the help of Stacey Abrams, candidate for governor of Georgia. If elected, she would be the first African-American woman governor in that state, and also in the history of The United States of America.

Candidate Blythe Ames (Tamara Tunie) prepares - with a voice as smooth and strong as a song - for the upcoming governor's election. Her husband Denson (Chad L. Coleman) should be happier for her political success. Her daughter Monica (Kara Young) should stop dyeing her hair. Across town, pop-culture blogger Evan (DAVID MERTEN) meets sexy stranger Shod (Ryan Cooper) at the dark and sordid Armature Bar where Mama serves the drinks - if he's able to avoid the reporters. The lives of these very different people collide as a roaring fire erupts with biblical wrath and passion, devouring everything in its path.

ARMATURE was originally developed under the Emerging Writer's Group at The Public Theatre, NYC, and featured in The Spotlight Series, directed by Liesl Tommy. The play was further developed at Cleveland Public Theatre under their Springboard and Big Box New Play series. It was directed by Sarah Greywitt.

We are a collaborative of diverse artists who are drawn to the best forms of storytelling. We seek to produce visceral, theatrical productions, and generate original, multi
