Theatre in the X presents THE LAST DEEP BREATH by Lee Edward Colston II

THE FIRST DEEP BREATH by Lee Edward Colston II

Pastor Albert Jones and his family are planning a special church service to honor their late daughter Diane on the sixth anniversary of her passing. But when Abdul-Malik, the eldest son he blames for her death returns home form prison, the entire Jones family is forced to confront a hornet's nest of long buried family secrets. Old skeletons claw their way to the dinner table picking at the scraps of Mother Bethel Baptist's First family. With each member of the Jones clan desperately fighting to stay afloat, sometimes a family that stays together drown together.

There will be a reading with a discussion with the playwright afterwards.
