Le’Andria Johnson, Angie Stone, Shawn and Rhonda McLemore, Dr. Pauline Key-Plummer, Bishop Aaron McNair and the hilariously funny Sister Cantaloupe are all starring in this award-winning gospel stage play written and produced by Dr Mildred Summerville and directed by Trina Jeffrie. In this gripping and engaging dramatic piece, a woman simply known as “Grandma” serves as the pillar of her surroundings. Her son’s family is in crisis, and those within her neighborhood are drowning in chronic troubles of their own. Through it all, Grandma seeks God on behalf of those who are not spiritually inclined enough to seek Him for themselves. Even those who resent her, such as her son’s sometimes-rigid wife, Linda, ultimately end up on Grandma’s prayer list. And when the walls of the lives of those around Grandma seem to come tumbling down, they know who to turn to for guidance and sound counsel. It’s not always advice that they want to hear, but it is consistently the precise word needed to steer them in the right direction. The drama uses spirit-filled music and memorable characters to engage the audience in their real life drama.
