BLACK DIAMOND

Spring 2007

Water Tower Water Works

Written by Ensemble Member J. Nicole Brooks
Directed by Ensemble Members J. Nicole Brooks and David Catlin

It’s 2003 in Liberia, a country in the diamond-mining region of Africa that was colonized by freed American slaves. While covering the conflict for the BBC, journalist Jim Fox meets Black Diamond, leader of an elite group of female rebel fighters who embody courage, rage and political vision. Their encounter opens the door to a spiritual world that has been missing for each and will provide them a key to re-examine their respective identities.

Featuring Ensemble Member Thomas J. Cox, Artistic Associate Kevin Douglas, with Alana Arenas, Adeoye, Freeman Coffey, Jason Delane Lee, Nancy Morisette, Tamberla Perry, Erick Ratcliff, Andrew Teamer, and Penelope Walker.
