Audible's Proof of Love, Starring Brenda Pressley, Releases Production Photos
Chisa Hutchinson's solo play is directed by Jade King Carroll.
Proof of Love has released photos of its world premiere. Written by Audible-commissioned playwright Chisa Hutchinson (Surely Goodness and Mercy), directed by Jade King Carroll (The Gin Game), and starring Brenda Pressley (The Lyons), performances began on May 7 ahead of a May 14 opening night at the Minetta Lane Theatre, Audible's creative home for live performances in New York. Check out some of the photos below.
The story is described as follows: "Constance thought she had a happy life and a loving husband. Suddenly, a tragic accident splinters her upper-class black family — and forces Constance to face uncomfortable truths about her marriage and herself."
Proof of Love is the inaugural live production from Audible's Emerging Playwright program, a dedicated $5 million fund that enables the creation of original plays driven by language and voice, keeping with Audible's core commitment to elevating listening experiences through powerful performances and extraordinary storytelling. Twenty-five commissions have already been announced, with new playwrights identified on an annual basis.
As with previous Audible Theater shows at the Minetta Lane, Audible will also record and release Proof of Love as an audio play, extending its reach to millions of listeners around the world.
