"A WOUND IN TIME" SLATED FOR OPEN RUN THIS FALL!

Actors Ryss and Soleidy Mendez in original showcase production.

Very excited to remount this play, much favored by all who saw it during it's run 2 years ago at the legendary Nuyorican Poets Cafe.  It is a very intense drama filled with lots of laughs, and of course, tackles social issues.  Regla de Ocha, also known  as Santeria, is a misunderstood African traditional religion retained by enslaved Africans in Cuba.  This play sheds light on and dispels some of the myths and misconceptions in a mystery/thriller.  Set in 1993 in Spanish Harlem, it shows a day in the life of practitioners of the religion, and tackles such social issues as religious persecution, bullying, classism, racism, homophobia, etc.  I really love the story and hoping this production continues to find others who feel the same.
