"A" Staged Reading
16-year-old ‘A’ is at war, battling herself and the world around her. She takes comfort in her relationship with God, her patient and compassionate friend who offers ‘A’ stillness and a listening ear. But just as she thinks she’s finally come to understand her own existence, God goes missing leaving ‘A’ to confront an antagonistic Narrator whose true identity may lead her to the peace she so desperately hopes to find. Inspired by George Bernard Shaw's The Adventures of the Black Girl in Her Search For God, 'A' is the story of a person, searching inside and outside of herself simply to understand herself. That search is filtered through a lens of black girlhood. ‘A’ hopes to ask and answer the question: Who has the right to self-creation?
