Helen will be starting rehearsals next month for a play called Brownsville Song: B-Side for Tray, written by Kimber Lee. She will be playing the role of Devine. This is a Stage II show directed by Professor Sarah d'Angelo at the Oklahoma City University's School of Theatre. The performances will run from April 15th through 17th at the Black Box Theatre in the school. Helen is very excited to start a new show and have her first experience being in a play and working with the School of Theatre.
Here is a brief description of the show:
Set in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn, brownsville song (b-side for tray) is a powerful tale of resilience in the face of tragedy. Moving fluidly between past and present, this bold new play tells the story of Tray, a spirited African-American 18-year-old and his family, who must hold on to hope when Tray’s life is cut short.
