Perform (Volume Three) includes:
“Clyde’s Last Delivery” by Jordan Thomas
What would you do to win the girl of your dreams? This is the rhetorical question that drives Jordan Thomas’ romantic comedy about a shy mailman who simply wants to do his job well and spend time with the woman he loves. Sweet and funny!
“11 Valentines” by Jake Barton
The battle of the sexes is an outdated war that has kept many members of the opposite sex from becoming what they could potentially become: Great friends. In his heartwarming poem, Jake Barton introduces us to Marcus Daniels, who learns early on that the opposites can indeed be attracted to one another and no one should go through compulsory education alone. A powerful poem with humor and heart!
“Lessons from a Big Girl with a Handicapped Parking Sticker” by Yolanda Williams
In her poignant essay, Yolanda Williams revisits her youth and examines how living with a disability can serve as a powerful metaphor for anyone who feels cornered by their own circumstances; after all, normal people are just “freaks” who are afraid to be themselves in public. An inspiring story of overcoming adversity!
“Cupcakes and Coltrane” by Jawoine Hawkins
In his dramatic tribute to motherhood, Jawoine Hawkins introduces us to the mother of a special needs child, and it is her love for baking cupcakes and listening to the genius of jazz musician, John Coltrane, that pull her through her darkest times. A truly touching dramatic!
“On the Other Side of the Door” by Matthew Yasuoka
According to statistics, approximately five million children witness domestic violence each year in the United States. In his hauntingly beautiful tale of the undeniable bonds that can exist between siblings, Matthew Yasuoka introduces us to a brother and sister who would do anything to protect each other. Outstanding Duo Interpretation for two performers adept at playing multiple characters!
