Short & Sweet Penang 2016: The Runaway Slave

My play “The Runaway Slave” is at the Short & Sweet Festival Penang starting last night and running through Saturday. Here’s the signage:img_20161115_1854412_rewind

The story is set in 1852 and a teen slave girl runs across an evening meadow on Christmas Eve and stumbles upon a house. Desperate for food, she meets the widow Beatrice who invites her in and shows her love while the sheriff is on her tail. It’s a touching story of protection and shelter in an unfair world.

Here’s the awesome young cast. These are three of my senior actors, Aaron (sheriff), Kimberly (Beatrice) and Lilian (Elly). Of course, there’s me trying desperately to figure out how to take this photo. They gave a terrific performance last night, and I’m so proud of each one of them.

This is my fifth festival here I’ve been a part of, and it’s been a lot of fun.

Runs through Saturday at the Penang Performing Arts Centre, starting at 8:30 each night.

This play will also be part of my upcoming show, “RLT Players present: Tales of Wonder 2” on December 1-3 @ penangpac. Hope to see you there!
