Thiz Girlz Lyfe
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
“Thiz Girlz Lyfe” tells the story of Nasheema Morgan, an exotic dancer in present-day Cleveland, Ohio. Nasheema appears to have everything she needs: a house, a handsome man, and a loving daughter. But beneath that facade, things are spiraling out of control. Nasheema’s husband expresses his anger with violence and belittling. The party scene that she turns to puts her daughter at greater risk. Nasheema can only deal with so much before she must find a way out. Co-presented by Playwrights Local, Cleveland’s only theater devoted to locally written works, and Powerful Long Ladder Ensemble, a new company headed by Terrence Spivey, former Artistic Director of Karamu House.

The cast of “Thiz Girlz Lyfe” features Lorraina Worthern and Martin Rawls IV and includes Samone Cummings, Sean Dubois Day, Rochelle Jones, Irma R. McQueen, Shante Smith, and Nyrie Stallworth. Design for the production is by Harold Crawford (costumes), Marcus Dana (lights), Beau Reinker (sound), Prophet Seay (set), and Lisa L. Wiley (props). The staff includes stage manager Geraldine Harris, board operator Calvin Lane, and carpenter Tom Hayes.
