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...

Congero extraordinaire Edgar Maldonado!  Wega!
Our wonderful conga player in "A Wound In Time" has passed on.  Edgar Maldonado was a cancer survivor who had been battling the disease for years.  I asked him to play congas not just to add a nice touch to the play but because I knew if he did what he loved and was good at it could possibly take his mind off his illness and give him something to look forward to.  I am glad he had a chance to do just that, passing over exactly 2 weeks from closing night!  God bless you and mucho gracias!
