Potluck & Play: IS GOD IS by Aleshea Harris



The first Potluck and Play in the new space was a great experience!

The readers read the hell outta their characters and the listeners were so thoughtful in their responses to this powerful, brutal and funny piece of theatre.  

To the bone it was indicative of what I wish the Performance Studio space to feel like.  Home and comfort.


Potluck and Play is a series of play readings that I will host at Performance Studio with good people, good stories and good food. I utilize these readings to engage with new material. The readings may or may not lead to a full production.

The Play – IS GOD IS by Aleshea Harris (3 Hole Press, Brooklyn). Winner of the 2016 Relentless Award, Harris’ play is a modern myth about twin sisters who sojourn from the Dirty South to the California desert to exact righteous revenge.  The readers are as follows:

Camille Marbly-Idowu

Shamonique Jones

Eve Martin

Kvn Tajzea

Kevin Hobbs, Jr.

Cedric Jones

Ja Nelle Davenport Pleasure

The reading will occur on Saturday, April 28th from 1:00pm-3:00pm as part of Performance Studio at Urbana Dance Company – 122 W. Main Street, 2nd Floor, Urbana. Note: The space is not wheelchair accessible at this time.
