A lot of young people in my Washington DC neighborhood are what I might term “serial loiterers,” heading toward their 30s and never having been gainfully employed. I am the author of many novels, no bestsellers mind you, and the stage play “Genesis:   Some Revelations in Three Acts.”   The play actually starts in the biblical Garden of Eden, with characters reflective of the same young people in my neighborhood. It moves through the capture of what we will term prisoners of war in Africa, again,  characterized by my actors from the neighborhood and reflective of their ancestors.  It moves on to a plantation (Act Two) in the south of America, and ends in the same neighborhood where these same young people today are living. “Adam and Eve” are played by the same actors from the Garden  of Eden, through capture on a slave ship, onto a plantation and to Southeast Washington present day.

There is a theater in our neighborhood that is rarely visited by the young loiterers. I want to help them build a theater production company using my play as a founding  instrument. The more talented among them will become the actors, and everyone involved will be taught the business and receive legal shares of ownership of “Genesis the Stage Play LLC,” which I registered with the DC government and IRS 12/14/2018.  From a community theater production in latter 2019, with successful fundraising efforts, I will teach the children, the young people, the business, and perhaps take the company, the stage play, into mainstream  Washington and prayerfully, much further.

So far there was enthusiasm, but it seems a far stretch to our goal and we cannot put on the stage play with lesser funds. So I've refunded most of the monies and anyone else can email me with instructions on where to send your refund check.
