Ms. Sophie Divine Presents, a timely new play and a response to the national trend of prominent black leaders using the pulpit to promote spiritual violence, receives a staged reading at the WOW Cafe Theatre. Ms. Sophie Divine Presents is the story of a young gay black man's attempt to take his life after years of having felt rejected by his church community. In the space between life and death, however, he meets Ms. Sophie Divine, who takes him on a reflective journey that spans the events leading up to his suicide attempt, and confronts the bigotry of the church.
After the staged reading, there is a talk-back surrounding the play's themes of race, sexuality, and Christianity, particularly as it pertains to Black Americans.
Online Box Office close at 5pm hours for that evening's performance. After that time, please buy your tickets at the WOW Cafe Theatre box office.
