Riding a Peacock – African American Family Drama

african american family drama


RIDING A PEACOCK is a play about life as it affects two young successful African/American families. One family rises from the “Ghetto,” and the other comes out of the Black elite. The play’s focus is upon an aspiring writer named Joyce Withers. Joyce yearns to make a full time living as a writer, but struggles with how to become one. Her first novel, written when she was a young woman, was aptly entitled, “Riding a Peacock,” signifying a journey to freedom on a bird’s back.  For Joyce, writing means freedom and a chance to truly be herself. This play is the journey of how she accomplishes that and how her family grows.  As much as it is powerful with interpretations of life, RIDING A PEACOCK is packed with incredibly lively characters and humor.

civil war play


This period drama in four acts is set around the time of the American Civil War. It looks at the lives of ordinary Americans, as well as that of the President and his wife. It examines how the war affected everyone, from the common soldier, the President and his family, to the Sioux Indians and Negroes now fighting in the war that was meant to free them.  And although many people were crying out for an end to the war, it continued to its inevitable conclusion. For once events were set in motion, it became as impossible to stop, as it was possible to justify.
