Brooks To Star In New PlayPosted by T'Bonz - 03/12/09 at 05:12 pm
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine‘s Avery Brooks will star in Centerstage’s production of Kwame Kwei-Armah‘s Let There Be Love.
Directed by Jeremy B. Cohen, Let There Be Love is the story of an embittered old West Indian immigrant threatened by new waves of migration.
Old Alfred, himself an immigrant to Britain, feels that his country is being taken from him. His life is one long battle; fighting against his proudly feminist daughter, raging against social change, combating his own failing health.
The arrival of a young Polish woman at his London flat challenges his old beliefs as well as fresh resentments.
Donetta Lavinia Grays and Gretchen Hall will star with Brooks in the play, which will run from February 10-March 7 at Centerstage, at 700 North Calvert Street in Baltimore.
