Tacoma Little Theatre and the American Association of Community Theatre (AACT) are pleased to present the AACT NewPlayFest winning play, Shattering by Pat Montley.

In Shattering, Jonah has just been released from juvenile commitment into the foster care of Jacqueline Dawson, whose estranged son Jonah helped to murder. She witnessed the crime and testified against the other two perpetrators. Now the gang leader who organized that crime wants to teach a lesson about what happens to "snitches." He orders Jonah to torture and kill Jacqueline- or be killed himself. The instructions come through Jonah's girlfriend LaBelle, whose investment in the outcome is intensified by her pregnancy. Jonah and LaBelle plot the murder, even as Jonah's relationship with the strict but caring Dawson develops, and his imagined visits with her dead son jar his conscience.


Chris Serface directs TLT's world premiere production of Shattering. The cast features Robin McGee as Jacqueline "DeeDee" Dawson, Donovan Mahannah as Jonah, Joshua Hector as Sonny, and Cynthia Kinyanjui as LaBelle. The production crew includes Assistant Director Jeremy Lynch, Stage Manager Nena Curley, with set design by Blake R. York, light design by Niclas Olson, sound design by Dylan Twiner, properties by Frank Roberts, and costumes by Michele Graves.
