Meet the Characters
This dynamic theatrical presentation, featuring The African American Repertory Theatre, features the journey of six courageous women who tell empowering stories of life, love and loss…and how they got through it all. These dramatic characters include:
Willingham a wealthy professional business woman who
thinks she has it all, but soon finds out that money doesn’t hold the key to
McMillan A streetwise rebellious young lady who comes to
realize the hard way that the choices you make today have a direct impact on
Harris A sister who has been crippled by her childhood
where she was constantly taunted for being “Dark Skinned”. She lives with the
mentality that “ Being dark skinned and a woman will never get you far!”
Freeman A charismatic mother of the church who has
spent so much time caring for others that she has forgotten about caring for
Jones a woman who never learned how to love herself
and now she uses her body to get what she want.
Randolph A college student on the eve graduating and
entering the work force. She struggles mightily with her weight. She blames
this struggle on her lack of significant relationships and the fact that she
didn’t land her dream job.
We all struggle with
something…but we never have to do it alone. What is your story?
