Darryl James, LA Sentinel columnist and award-winning author is opening his new stage play “Love in a Day” on Mother’s Day Weekend, with a special Mother’s Day Performance on Sunday, May 8th, 2011.
“Love in a Day,” is a story of love in the age of troubled relationships, tackling the most salient issues affecting relationships in the new millennium, including HIV, unequally yoked professions, interracial love and the Down Low scare.
Each couple in the play is seeking to rebuild their relationship, dealing with a specific difficulty that is easy for the others to see, but not so easy to look at in a mirror. On a relationship retreat lead by a relationship coach and his assistant, each couple works through their difficulties to find love. The atmosphere, the discussion and the vibes spark chemistry as each person falls in Love in a Day.
“Love In A Day” features a cast of working actors who have been featured in commercials, television shows and other stage plays. “Love In A Day” stars Dingani Beza, winner of Outstanding Lead Male in a Drama Series at the LA Web Festival in Los Angeles for his role in the web series “Asylum.”
“Asylum” was an official selection of the NYTVF (New York Television Festival), the Anaheim International film festival, and winner of the LA web festival.
The Mother’s Day showing of the play will feature a special Intermission performance by saxophonist Mekiel Reuben, whose explosive saxophone style has been compared to the likes of Grover Washington Jr. and John Klemmer.
Reuben is featured once each month at 94.7 The Wave’s Sunday Bruch at i.Cugini’s Italian Seafood Restaurant in Long Beach.
