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...

BRAVO! THANK YOU!
What a wonderful table read last night! Most of the cast saw the script for the first time and managed to bring the characters to life without direction. The private reading was for folks who had submitted for production crew positions as I wanted them to hear the story first and then decide if they wanted to move on to being interviewed as part of the "organic process". I am happy to say that they were very impressed with the cast and the story. Many thanks to Anissa Smith, Frankie Ramos, Wanda Colon, Tina Moore, Evan Davis, Michelle Lamelza, Irma Cadiz, Stacey Griffin, Alan Liddell, John Larkin, Steve Devito, Bill Barry, China L. Colston, and Gyavira Lasana! Next phase will be crew interviews next week. Bravo all!
