14th Annual BGL Cruise Presents Highly Acclaimed Play About Gay Schoolteacher Accused of Child Molestation

Sailing November 2-10, 2011

For the first time, The Songmaster BGL Cruise will present its guests with an evening of enchanting live theatre! “Armstrong’s Kid”, featuring NPA 174855 168941049820380 53611 n 196x300 14th Annual BGL Cruise Presents Highly Acclaimed Play About Gay Schoolteacher Accused of Child Molestation Thandiwe De Shazor, is a riveting piece written by  three time NAACP Theatre Award and NAACP Image Award-winning novelist, playwright, filmmaker, journalist and actor Stanley Bennett Clay. The play stars a gay schoolteacher (Clay) who is falsely accused of child molestation by his best friend’s fourteen-year-old son and spends nearly a year in prison before the truth is revealed.

Eleven years later, the now-grown accuser (co-star Thandiwe Thomas De Shazor) goes to the cabin retreat of the falsely accused to seek forgiveness. What follows is a blistering showdown, ripe with bitter confrontations, shocking revelations, vicious humor, hidden desires, and bitter truths exposed.

The Songmaster BGL Cruise may be smooth sailing but Stanley Bennett Clay’s “Armstrong’s Kid” promises to rock you like you’ve never been rocked before!

Sailing: Nov. 2 through 10, 2011

The Paul Robeson Project

Ever heard of Paul Robeson?

He is an internationally renowned and celebrated actor, athlete, lawyer, singer and activist.  Yet, he is all but erased from mainstream US history. Paul Robeson is pre Civil Rights Movement and smack dab Jim Crow and McCarthyism. Despite these obstacles, he achieves highly.  Despite being a high achiever, human flaws arise…

This lecture demonstration about Paul Robeson by “Paul” shares his history, experiences, and what elements make up his particular brand of icon.

“Where My Girls At?”

“Where My Girls At?” is a “thoughtful, provocative, and insanely funny” one woman show written and performed by the “multi-talented” Micia Mosely. Portraying five drastically different characters representing the diversity of Black lesbian experiences, Micia challenges the notion that there is only one way to be Black or queer in the 21st century. A phenomenal one hour performance steeped in improv and audience participation, Where My Girls At? has thrilled audiences across the country from San Francisco, Detroit and New York to Amherst, Chapel Hill and Honolulu. A New York Innovative Theater Award Nominee, the show, while hilarious, continues to tackle difficult issues including inter and intra-group racism, sexism, and homophobia.
