The Black Social Network Play is an artistic performance that demonstrates the pitfalls of ignoring your online reputation and/or living your life online. The play opened at The Producers Club off-Broadway in 2014, and has toured college campuses in Houston, Detroit and Chicago. The Black Social Network Play, a part of the prestigious Atlanta Black Theatre Festival, opens in Atlanta for one night only on October 8, 2015 at 6 p.m., at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center, on the campus of Morehouse College.
Play Synopsis: The Notorious Eva James–portrayed by Demi Lobo–is an ambitious celebrity publicist who unravels when an online rumor triggers offline consequences. Jasmine–portrayed by Marisa Baldwin-Woodhouse–is a cafe owner and a social media addict who refuses to ‘keep it real’ online about her fading love life. For these two women, image is everything— until reality crashes the party.
The ensemble cast also includes Simeon Henderson, Caneil “Chill” Oliver, Shettima Webb, Keisha Rose, Andrea Wright, and Giorgio Johnson.
Executive producer: Zondra Hughes. Director: Christopher Nolen. Social Media Strategist: L. Martin Johnson Pratt. Official photographer: Dawj Sangster. Assistant to the Executive Producer: Christi Rodriguez.
