March 2015 New York City – Liverpool Trading Reading

Moving Forward with Liverpool Trading….

This month I’m working with Richard Aellen to revise Liverpool Trading for Kim Weston Moran’s Potpourri Festival. Reading is Sunday March 8 at Kenkelaba Gallery on Second Street. I’m very excited to be collaborating with Anne Hamilton of Hamilton Dramaturgy on revising the script. Director is Letitia Guillory

The play will become a musical called Mersey, a bi-national project in collaboration with producer Jonathan Man of the UK. Look for a fall workshop production of new songs.

PLOT SYNOPSIS

When Pat, an Afro-Caribbean woman from NYC returns to Liverpool to find her roots, a magical pub run by an Irishman named Monroe transports her through time. In the process, she learns about her roots in the musical madness of the Mersey.
