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...

Whew! Once I catch my breath after the staged reading, after editing the trailer for my doc, I hope to begin filming the play "A Wound In Time" for international distribution in English and Spanish. During it's run at Nuyorican many out of town begged that I make it available on DVD. Well... Okay! I'm gonna do it! Stay tuned!

It was a wonderful exerience directing and producing "A Wound In Time". The cast did a great job and it was well received. While the play was running at Nuyorican I was cast in Julius Caesar Set in Africa by Rome Neal, who is the Theatre Director at Nuyorican. So right after my show closed I went into rehearsal for JC. It was my return to the stage after 21 years. It was fantastic! I accomplished lots in 2010 and in February completed a new play "Blood Makes The Red River Flow", inspired by The Louisiana Creoles I filmed and research for my documentary. It will have a staged reading May 1st.

In 2011 I hope to remount "A Wound In Time", mount "Blood Makes The Red River Flow", and resume filmming my documentary.

BTW I now host and produce a radio show "Multicultural Moments" on blogtalkradio.com
