2017-18 Season of Shows: What Will We Tell Our Children?
October, 2017: A Soldier’s Play by Charles Fuller
December, 2017: Black Nativity by Langston Hughes
February, 2018: Two shows running simultaneously in two venues:
Bent by Martin Sherman
Pooled by Moses T. Alexander Greene
Music Direction by Carolyn Colquitt
From the playwright:
According to legend, the first person to step in the Pool of Bethesda after its waters are troubled is healed completely of any infirmity--physical, emotional, mental, spiritual. Delsin Jacobs arrives to the Pool determined to be the next person to receive healing. But, in his waiting, he encounters others and discovers how difficult it may be to answer two questions: Do you want to be the only one healed now? If made whole, do you have what it takes not to become broken again?
Under the music direction of Carolyn Colquitt and with a score of soul-cleansing gospel, sultry r & b, and heart-wrenching blues, Moses T. Alexander Greene's Pooled is the story of how Delsin Jacobs' steadfastness for personal healing is changed by his interaction with those at the pool whose needs may be different, but they possess the same dauntless desire for healing. Experience live on stage what those who have been pooled discover about Delsin, themselves, and their perspectives of agency, life and God in the midst of the waiting.
