TAMPA, March 31 /Christian Newswire/ -- Local stage play with a cast of dynamic African American actors, debut May 3rd, 2008 in Tampa, Florida, "She Is Not Who I Thought...She Is My Mother." 3 mothers, 3 decisions and 1 hope. When the secrets are unexpectedly revealed, trust is broken and a family's love is put to the ultimate test.
Tyler Perry, known for his films and numerous stage plays (featuring the colorful "tell it like it is" Madea), is one of the many well received successful writers, directors, and producers in the black circuit. Thus saying, a new face has emerged among us bringing originality and experience to the community. "There is a great need in the Greater Tampa Bay Area for Performing Arts that not only entertains, but compels us to self-examination resulting in self-purpose."
Ann Thomas is the writer, producer, and director of the upcoming stage play "She Is Not Who I Thought... She is My Mother" debut May 3, 2008. Her versatility speaks for itself. She has performed in various stage plays, is a writer, inspirational speaker, singer, rapper, and former dancer. She is the published author of various short stories, poems, articles, and mini productions.
Black theater art has graced our stages for over nine decades. It's thought provoking, captivating, entertaining, and uplifting. Every stage play tells a story of its own - real issues for real people. Creating a sense of association and hope.
Mothers have always had a tremendous responsibility in society, whether single or married. And too often lose themselves in an unhealthy cycle of over protectiveness and self-preservation. Thus, the superwoman persona rears its self-dependent head. The mothers in this stage play love their children with all of their hearts, but each hide a deep secret to protect them. When the secrets are revealed, feelings are torn and trust is broken.
Hiding the truth only causes pain and division once revealed. It is time to break the generational cycles of unnecessary hurt. Be prepared to laugh, cry, and do everything in between! Don't miss "She is Not Who I Thought... She is My Mother" debut May 3, 2008. Brought to you by our very own Ann Thomas with MindBodyandSoul Productions.
