Wine in the Wilderness By
Alice Childress (1969)
Edited and Adapted by Veronica Redd into A Duo-logue
Based on the character “Tommy”, a female dress factory worker
I had one week to memorize my lines and to actually think about what I was saying. Everything was going well until I began to over analyze the piece and started to stress out. I mean I am paying tribute Alice Childress' "Wine in the Wilderness" and I wanted to embody the character - to act like the women back in 1969 (look, speak, dance, etc.,). As I shared my concerns with "MzV", she assured me of a fine performance. I realized that there's no reason to stress over my worries.
YESTERDAY WAS OUR "SEAMLESS" DEBUT!!! It was a wonderful event!
