ABOUT...

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...

WHAT A JUDGE FROM THE 2011 IT AWARDS SAID ABOUT THE ORIGINAL PRODUCTION OF "A WOUND IN TIME"!

AWIT may not have won an IT Award for it's 2010 production but this judge's comment means the world!

Judge 1: This was a long show 2 hours and 20 minutes. It's hard to hold an audience that long, but they did. It was a wonderful evening in the theatre and I'm delighted I had the chance to see it. I was especially glad to see such well written and acted women on stage. The story was compelling, complex, funny and the characters rich.
