ONE OF LOVE - a Jonathan Daniels story- A One Act Play and Talk Back

One Of Love debuted in 2018 at the Bridgeport's Bijou Theatre and the historic St John's Episcopal Church, Bridgeport, CT. This is a powerful, original play written and directed by Rev Ina Alisa Anderson. This distinct production had such a marvelous cast last year and this year we thought we would feature the 3 main characters. This is 2019 production is a One Act show that will be "Up Close and Personal". The message is still LOVE! Love of God, Love of Oneself and Love of our Fellowman. Without it, this so-called Love, how will we reconcile humanity?

Jonathan Daniels' death is celebrated every year somewhere. He is on the Episcopal Calendar, canonized as a Saint, memorialized at the Southern Poverty Law Center's Civil Rights Memorial in Montgomery, Alabama and there is a pilgrimage that takes place to Hayneville, Ala every year to commemorate his death. His acts of Social Justice he saw, as a Call!

Ruby Sales the young girl was threatened by a shotgun-wielding construction worker, Tom Coleman, who was a special county deputy. Jonathan Daniels, a white Episcopal seminarian, pushed her out of the way and took the shot meant for her, dying instantly. Now 71, Ms. Sales, a Human Rights Advocate is still working and speaking on behalf of justice for the people and against the constructs of White Supremacy and systems!

After the production, there will be a brief Q & A with the director and cast, and a brief discussion, (Town Hall if you will) among the audience before we break for some light refreshments then depart! I look forward to seeing you all in the house for this intimate time we shall spend together.
