Solid Lines Productions is excited to invite you to a reading of Tarell Alvin McCraney’s MARCUS; OR THE SECRET OF SWEET, being performed at UMSL on Tuesday, February 6th at 7pm. Directed by Jackie Chambers, this extraordinary cast features Karl Hawkins along with Alexis Atkinson, Taleesha Caturah, Rhonda Cropp, William Humphrey, Laurell Renea Stevenson, Darrious Varner, and Minware Tutu.
From the Dramatists Play Service, Inc. website: Marcus is sixteen and “sweet.” Days before Hurricane Katrina strikes the projects of Louisiana, the currents of his life converge, overflowing into his close-knit community and launching the search for his sexual and personal identity on a cultural landscape infused with mysterious family creeds. The provocative, poignant, and fiercely humorous coming-of-age story of a young gay man in the South, MARCUS is the stirring conclusion of The Brother/Sister Plays.
As with all of our productions, admission is FREE! Looking forward to seeing you there!!
