IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER: Harris takes on faith and the family with new gospel drama

BORN TO WIN: Harris shows off her 2010 Thespy for Judgement.

“Our belief is that gospel ministry should be diverse, broadening its reach and appeal to mass audiences,” emphasizes Dahlia Harris in reference to the impending premiere of God’s Way, her latest venture into playwrighting – and a follow-up to 2010’s memorable and Thespy-winning Judgement. “In applying the production qualities of commercial theatre, we can offer content that not only resonates with the tenets of Christianity, but provides accessibility for cross-denominational audiences.”

God’s Way follows Valerie, a devout Christian who has been blessed with a good home, a wonderful husband and an ambitious daughter. When her husband’s activities become exposed as everything but legitimate, she must deal with the fallout that sends her spiralling into chaos. Set for a limited run, the production opens September 30 at the Theatre Place, Haining Road, New Kingston and will feature the talents of Gracia Thompson, Trudy Campbell, Sabrena McDonald and Ainsley Whyte. Tickets and info: 352-6180; theatrejamaica09@yahoo.com.
