A Summer in 1993 in Spanish Harlem finally reveals the secret past of Cuban-American cardiac nurse Negra Centron. A childhood secret torments the life and stifles the growth of a beautiful woman. The ancient religion of the Yoruba people of Nigeria, known as Regla de Ocha and Santeria in the Diaspora, is the engine behind this supernatural mystery thriller. This African-evolved religion, with its magic, is the backdrop for this tale of love, hate, deceit, betrayal, obsession, forgiveness, acceptance, and hope. Magic, ritual, and destiny are the threads unraveling this gripping, edgy, mystery/thriller.
Pressured by a suspicious mother, a strange bed-fellow, and an amorous co-worker, Negra battles to keep a childhood secret from unraveling while a restless spirit and the African gods seek justice...

Last week I had a staged reading for the screenplay version of 'AWIT". It was held at the beautiful Judson Memorial Church on Washington Square. It went very well, considering there was some last minute drama (well it is a drama) concerning casting (resolved within just hours of the reading) and sound problems. Some of those who gave their time and effort to the reading will continue on to be in the production of the play this Fall. The director of the reading, Orlando Iriarte, will direct the play with me. He's already working on his outfit for the Tony Awards! LOL! I want to thank him and the cast Natasha Ononobgo; Joseph Melendez; Denia Brache; Christina Laboy; Robert Gibbons; Irma Cadiz; Will Mercado; Hjordys Matos; Harvey Johnson; and Jorge Rojas for their support. Also, a special thanks to Jamil Mangin, who told be about the venue, and to Regan Giddens and Dennis Delbene for their administrative assistance.
THANK YOU ALL!!!!
