"A WOUND IN TIME" AVAILABLE FOR OUTREACH AND RETURNING TO THE STAGE

"A Wound In Time" was written for the love of a good drama, and more importantly, to address certain social issues that plague us. The issues of racism, classism, homophobia, intra-racism, colorism, interracial dating, the stigma and trap of being an ex-convict, psychological issues like self-esteem, depression, and post traumatic stress disorder, are reflected in the play. The characters are either victims, and/or guilty of perpetuating the problems that lead to conflict. When it comes from outside it is threatening. But when it comes from within it is more dangerous, as these behaviors are usually either accepted and ingrained in the culture, OR swept under the rug, never to be acknowledged or examined.

This is why I am making a condensed version of the play for my ensemble to perform at colleges and community organizations for cultural diversity appreciation. It is indeed a raw, and edgy drama, with adult content. However, it is entertaining; being educational without preaching. For more information please contact me at steph@wetprods.com.
