Come Back To Me is a tale about religion, secrets and communication in the African American family. With a poetic arrangement that flows easily from amusing banter to sticky political debates, playwright/Zen master Jesse Cameron Alick combines different voices and personalities, weaving Buddhist and Christian prayers together and taking on the themes of mistaken conception, judgment and the true nature of unconditional love.
Cross Lines: A Black Woman's Perspective is the debut play by award-winning poet/writer Ebony Washington (with Patricia Belizario.) In Cross Lines, a woman travels across the country to speak with five women about politics, where they share their diverse opinions of Black women . . . and the importance of getting involved with the political process.
