Award-Winning Author Brings Original Stage Play to Hampton
September 15, 2008 – Atlanta, GA—It has been three years in the making, but she has finally done it. Award-winning author/playwright, Laurinda D. Brown, returns to Hampton to give her former home a taste of her acclaimed production Walk Like A Man - The Play, September 20, 2008, 7:00 p.m. in the American Theatre, 125 E. Mellen Street, Hampton, VA. Tickets are $25 and available through www.BrownPaperTickets.com. Walk Like A Man – The Play is a presentation of Positive Scribe Productions LLC.
The all-female, ten-member cast, commandingly spits spoken word and dramatic monologues as they portray and address labels, issues, and stereotypes in LGBT relationships. Their efforts do not go un rewarded as audiences give Walk Like A Man – The Play a resounding seal of approval as it presents issues such as same-sex domestic violence, “Don’t Ask-Don’t Tell”, teenagers and two-mom households, homosexuality and religion, gay-curious women, workplace romances, runaway youth and sexual identity, the joy of new love, the demise of an old one. “This production is so powerful that the quiet is loud.” “You’ll laugh; you’ll cry; you’ll leave enlightened. Laurinda gets you.” Playing consistently to standing-room only audiences, after seeing this play you, too, will agree and join in the standing ovations.
According to Laurinda, the play’s mission is to enlighten theatre-goers through entertainment. “If I can get just one person in the audience to leave with the understanding that our situations, our problems, our joys, our home life with our children, they way we love are no different than theirs, I feel I will have accomplished my goal to promote understanding and diversity.”
Walk Like A Man – The Play is based on the Laurinda D. Brown book of short stories, Walk Like A Man, winner 2006 Lambda Literary Award.
Remaining dates on the 2008 tour are Washington, DC and Detroit Michigan.
