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...

Pre-sale tix only $20 on sale in August @ http://www.nuyorican.org

Most of the cast now has script in hand and are working on their lines for rehearsals in September. The poster that I made from a collage of photos I took of Spanish/Italian Harlem is done. I have to edit the text but it will work for now for usage on the Nuyorican Website for Presale Tickets. The background music has been chosen. It is the new music of two composers/producers. It is haunting and beautiful. Their CDs will be available at the show for purchase.
