Back by popular demand, a new play by Steven A. Butler Jr. Bowie, MD – September 24, 2014: Following rave reviews and sold out performances this summer, Restoration Stage is proud to present Chocolate Covered Ants; back by popular demand. Dr. Adrienne Taylor returns for another intense round of therapy and exploration. For the last three years, the professor of mental health at Farrington Women’s College has dedicated herself to researching the plight of the African-American woman. Chocolate Covered Ants chronicles the final leg of her study, an in-depth look at the African-American male and the hypothetical effects he may contribute to mental, social, and physical survival of the African-American female. As Dr. Adrienne Taylor journeys through the mind of the African-American man her study takes an unexpected turn. The joys, pains, truths, and lies she encounters promise to not only affect her patients, but Dr. Taylor herself. Chocolate Covered Ants is a carefully crafted story that speaks to the complexities of us all. As previous audiences have noted, this is a show not to be missed. Presented by Restoration Stage, Chocolate Covered Ants is written by Steven A. Butler Jr. (The Truth) and is directed by Courtney Baker-Oliver (All That Glitters). Jivon Lee Jackson (The Color Purple) produces and Desire Dubose serves as acting coach. Chocolate Covered Ants features powerful performances by MC Chris Blaze, Sulie Myrie, Clermon Acklin, Tillmon Figgs, Wilma Lynn Horton, Kandace Foreman, Marquis Fair, and Charles W. Harris Jr. Marlon Russ original cast member from Restoration Stage’s critical hit “The Truth” joins this formidable cast. Restoration Stage is honored to continue as the premiere African-American Theater company in Prince Georges County Maryland. Chocolate Covered Ants runs October 16-October 26 at the beautiful Bowie Center for the Performing Arts located at 15200 Annapolis Road, Bowie, MD 20715. Tickets are $25 and are on sale now.
