The New Britain Chapter of the NAACP, in conjunction with Cosborn Entertainment, is presenting the locally created Gospel stage play “A Song of Life in the Key of Pain”.
The performance will be on Saturday, June 10, 2017, at the Torp Theater on the campus of Central Connecticut State University. There will be 2 shows at 2:00pm and 7:00pm.
“A Song of Life in the Key of Pain”, written by local artist and NAACP member, Colin Ivan Osborn, “is an emotional story about Edward Charles and the renowned praise team of High Praise Church,” as the play’s promotion page says.
“As the leader of this famed group of singers, Eddie’s personal life and struggles are put on blast forcing him to deal with his reality. Having to deal with the conflicts within the praise team, a strained relationship with his family, financial/economical struggles and the church for what it really is all at the same times causes Eddie to ask questions that he has never asked before. But the success of everyone connected to him is determined by Eddie’s ability to overcome. Does Eddie break and give into all that he is dealing with or does he stand on his faith and lead his group into the next level of ministry? Does the Praise Team get the record deal? What happens with his family?”
The play is directed by Osborn and stars Douglas Charles, Joshua Daniel, Trinene Davis, Christina Williams, Brittney Robinson, Justise Hariston, Latarsha Starling, Reginald Robinson and Anthony Ligon.
The goal of the June 10th production is to increase the visibility of the New Britain NAACP by promoting the organization’s mission and registration and to building and developing the New Britain NAACP’s youth department and creative arts program. Funds raised from this production will go directly to the New Britain NAACP towards this goal.
