Washington, DC (PressExposure) December 21, 2007 -- "A Change Is Gonna Come", a stage play about domestic violence in the church, makes its national debut, Friday, June 13 - Sunday, June 15, 2008, at the historic Lincoln Theater, 1215 U. Street, Washington, DC. This emotionally-charged play depicts a prominent, poised, powerful, and prosperous Pastor (Pastor James Sills) who physically, mentally, and sexually abuses his lovely wife (First Lady Lisa Sills) behind closed doors. Witness the silent agony this beautiful woman endures while publicly pretending to be the perfect pastor's wife.
The Afro American newspaper, (Washington, DC - August 11, 2007) best sums up the âmeatâ of this wonderful stage play by stating:
âA Change Is Gonna Come dispels the notion that domestic violence and abuse happens to certain classes and groups of people, but it happens to all people including âchurch folk.â Although the background of the play centers around the church, it is layered with signs of violence and abuse which can be physical, emotional, sexual, psychological, and social.â
Located in the infamous "U Street Corridor", the Lincoln Theater is rich in culture and has hosted such legendary greats as the late Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, and Billie Holiday, to name a few. For more information, visit their website at lovethelincoln.org
