Ninety-year-old Grace loves her country, mountain home and her way of life. She wants to live out her days there, but developers are threatening her home and cancer is threatening her life. Gloria, a volunteer hospice worker, arrives at her doorstep one day to help, or so she thinks.
Can the young, “yuppie” city woman relate to Grace and her way of life to help her face her troubles? How will the troubles in Gloria’s own heart affect the situation? Both lives will be touched by the remarkable and beautiful relationship that forms.

Set It Off
Crown Production Studios
Since the dawn of age women have been resilient in facing the throws of life, hiding the pain deep inside. We’ve powdered the cracks of disappointment just to appear flawless to our men and family, but what do you do when enough is enough? How do you overcome?
Nikki is no different. Will she overcome with grace? Set It Off explores the lives of six women in the midst of turmoil, and how they deal with ridicule, temptation, and abandonment. Will they make the right choice? Or will they stay bad to the bone? After all; it is known that man has his will, but a woman will always have her way!
Award winning playwright RonSher T Brooks is bringing her highly anticipated rendition of Set It Off to the Riverside Arts Center.
Starring DJuana Morton, Tiffany Love, Shawn Williams, Alexis Street, Cecily Gooden, and Kimberly Miss Pinctoes Kane.

At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is even more mad. In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirbys.
The plot shows how Tony, attractive young son of the Kirbys, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home on the wrong evening. The shock sustained by the Kirbys, who are invited to eat cheap food, shows Alice that marriage with Tony is out of the question.
The Sycamores, however, though sympathetic to Alice, find it hard to realize her point of view. Meantime, Tony, who knows the Sycamores are right and his own people wrong, will not give her up, and in the end Mr. Kirby is converted to the happy madness of the Sycamores, particularly since he happens in during a visit by an ex-Grand Duchess, earning her living as a waitress.
No mention has as yet been made of the strange activities of certain members of the household engaged in the manufacture of fireworks; nor of the printing press set up in the parlor; nor of Rheba the maid and her friend Donald; nor of Grandpa’s interview with the tax collector when he tells him he doesn’t believe in the income tax.
