Synopsis: Maya Angelou admirers Sabrina and Andrea have a secret that’s kept them apart for five years. David, Sabrina’s husband, is a poet tormented on writing a final poem before self-publishing his first book. The money he borrows to publish his book is questionable, and when certain people come looking for the money a showdown ensues. Empowered after attending a Maya Angelou speaking engagement, Sabrina and Andrea walk in on the altercation and seize the moment to expose their secret. What they reveal makes an already dangerous confrontation more dangerous. (Ages 13+. Runs appr. 80 minutes)

The Absent Father, the Wayward Son: A POWERFUL, FUNNY, MUST-SEE SHOW! David “DayDay” Williams has never seen his father in person but discovers photos of his father under his mother’s bed affirming their resemblance. This leads to David questioning his worth, resulting in an angry, confused, and wayward life.

At seventeen, his mother reveals a secret, driving David to express his feelings about the father he’s never met, and how different his life would’ve been if he had. Laced with multiple characters (played by Hughes), ​”The Absent Father, the Wayward Son” is a story about love, repentance, redemption, and forgiveness. (Ages 13+)
