|Clarence Leonard Jr. as Chee Chee|
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 can I say? After everyone slowly recovers from the malaise from hurricane Sandy, I can at least say "A Wound In Time" went out with a BAM!!!! What a lovely turnout for the final performance. I so appreciate each and everyone who came out during this hectic holiday week. It meant so much to the cast and I. Your kind words well remain in my heart forever...

A friend, who I've known from the days I bartended at the Broadway show "Cats" and she worked Concessions, came to see my historical Creole drama, "Blood Makes The Red River Flow", last February. It was her first time seeing my work. She couldn't attend "A Wound In Time" but she insisted on sending me a check instead in support of my work and my cause, because she had so enjoyed my Creole drama, and learned so much. I tried to fight her on this but she insisted. I am so amazed that my work is so appreciated.

Our closing night show is gonna be a blast! Even with the holiday week advance sales for Tuesday are moving steadily. So nice of folks to want to take time from their holiday preparation to spend with us! Thank you all! Our Monday makeup show is therefore cancelled. We have to succumb to the wrath of Sandy, but she won't spoil our closing night!

It was also wonderful to have Ryss in the audience. She originated the role of the snoopy, busy body Cuban mother in the show's showcase production at Nuyorican Poets Cafe. She looked and spoke wonderfully after recovering from a stroke.

Ryss will join us as a guest. She played Millie Centron in the original production at Nuyorican Poets Cafe. Happily, she is recovering nicely from a stroke which initially left her speechless. But she's back and chatty as ever. Can't wait to hear her voice again!
