As Part of Playground's Second Saturdays Series


On Saturday, March 13, 2004, I was one four playwrights whose work was featured in the latest installment of "Second Saturdays", a monthly series of free, informal, afternoon readings sponsored by Playground, the writers’ workshop at Woolly Mammoth Theatre founded by playwright Robert Alexander.

My contribution was the most recent version of "Storm Signals", a one-act script chronicling romantic entanglements among three young lesbians, as they wind down summer jobs before their senior year at Howard University.

Thembi Duncan and Tanya Upshur (pictured front and rear, above) returned to roles they originated in two earlier readings last year, as a street vendor and her lover, a bike messenger.

Kai Green joined the cast, making her ACT debut, as the fellow student and law intern whose attentions threaten the relationship. She continued in a role originally played by Dawn Douglas, who was unexpectedly called away to New York for a role in an upcoming film.

Melissa Princess Best, fresh from a triumphant turn in "Joe Turner’s Come and Gone" at the Kennedy Center, once again served as narrator.

The Second Saturdays continues once a month through July 10th, when the reading of an expanded version of my play, "BrotherHoods", ends the season.
