Fun Home by Kesha Issac-Adams, Garvey's Wives by Dahlia Harris & Trapped by Amba Chevannes are 3 short plays in development that each delve into powerful isssues that straddle the personal & political.

"Trapped" looks at the decision to abort

"Garvey's Wives" looks at the powerful women who did the work with the man, without much credit.

"Fun Home" looks at a very dark side of the mother-son relationship

In Brooklyn:

We go to the lighter side of life with Aston Cooke's "Single Entry," on Feb. 12th. This work sheds light on one aspect of the Jamaican immigrant experience.
