“MA ROSE” is
written by talented playwright and educator Cassandra Medley, and directed by the Bay Area’s award winning actor, director,
comedian, and playwright Donald E. Lacy Jr. Mr. Lacy is no stranger to the stage and
was recently seen in the Sacramento’s debut of “COLORSTRUCK”, the anchor show of IMAGES’ 2008/2009
Guild Theater Inaugural Season. Lisa Lacy, IMAGES’ Executive Director/Producer and Charles Cooper,
Musical Director team up, again to add their signature touches to the production.
IMAGES THEATRE COMPANY kicks
off their 2009/2010 Season at the Guild Theatre with the play, “MA ROSE.” In true IMAGES
THEATRE COMPANY fashion, the story unfolds using soul stirring gospel music, insightful direction, and powerful prose and
actors. MA ROSE is a timeless drama that unfolds by combining
gospel music, comedy, and drama through flashbacks and the unraveling of buried family secrets to tackle the dilemma that
families face, and address the decisions that must be made when our loved ones begin showing adverse signs of aging.
On the surface, the family conflict centers around Ma Rose, the beloved family matriarch who is thought to be losing
touch with reality, and therefore leaving her loved ones unprepared with how to cope with life, without her. Through
the eyes of three generations of women (Ma Rose, played by Tamiko Greely, Vera-Rose, her daughter, played by Lisa Lacy and
Rosa, her grand-daughter, played by newcomer, Leah Albright-Byrd), we are taken on a journey scarred by physical and emotional
abuse to learn that Ma Rose is not the only one struggling for freedom, forgiveness, and dignity. Rounding
out the cast are Donald E. Lacy Jr. in the role of Wayman, Ma Rose’s hen-pecked son and Etta Martin-Sikich as his busy-body
and hilariously, funny wife, with vocals by Quintina Watts, Julia Price and LaMar Edwards.
