NAACP award-winning playwright Kosmond Russell will present a scripted showcase presentation of his new play, “The Message.”

The free event will be held Saturday, Sept. 15, at 4 p.m., at the Barbara Morrison Performing Arts Center, 4300 Degnan Blvd., in Los Angeles. James Pickens, Jr., of “Grey’s Anatomy” will serve as host.

Describing the storyline, Russell said, “This play is a funny, powerful and thought-provoking gospel musical that will have you singing, rejoicing, reflecting and laughing. It is a universal human story rich in challenges, triumph and redemption. It begs the question, ‘Why do we have to deal with so much stuff?’ The truth will make you think and set you free!”

Music will be performed by Jacob Lusk, keyboardists Daryl and Deondre Ellis and saxophonist Mark Allen Felton.
