You may not recognize the name now, but you have seen her face and if you buy a ticket to her play at Dwyer Theater you will remember her name.
Lorey Hayes, an original cast member of the play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enuf has found a passion for writing. Her latest play, Haiti’s Children Of God , was written in 1992. The play included an earthquake. During rehearsals’ last January, Haiti was devastated by an earthquake.
Within the cast is a special Haitian woman named Marie Eusebe. Ms. Eusebe was so moved by the devastation she gave up her safe livelihood at American Express to raise funds to build a water reservoir in Petite Goâve. Petite Goâve is the home town of her father. She has created a non-profit organization called Community2 Community to raise the needed funds. You can donate by clicking here Community2Community.info/
On the March 10 performance admission will be $25.00 where by $5.00 will go to C2C in support of their Haiti Restoration and Transformation Project in Petite Goave, Haiti.
The social conscientiousness doesn’t stop there. On Saturday March 5, 2011 at 2:00 PM, Haiti’s Children of God will be performed in sign language for the hearing impaired.
What are you going to do with folks like that? Do your part! Buy a ticket see the play and spread the word to all, including the hearing impaired. Oh, and don’t forget to donate to Community2Community.
The play starts on Thursday February 24, 2011 and runs each weekend through March 13, 2011 at the Dwyer Cultural Center. See flyer below or goto http://www.dwyercc.org/ for ticket purchase as well as time and dates of performances.
