Kenike Miché’s Cindy Soul, is the new hit play featuring Rah Digga, female rap artist phenomenon, that responds to police brutality as the world slowly recovers from the devastating global pandemic of this century. In this remake of the ole’ classic fairytale, ‘Cinderella,’ a young black girl who’s lost her mother is abused by her evil Step Mother and bullied by her Step Sisters. Her Father, seemingly blinded by her Step Mother’s seduction and deceit, does not rescue her from harm. As she struggles to survive in her newly blended family, Cindy makes a stand for JUSTICE against police brutality. Meanwhile, the proverbial Prince and his crew also make a tribute to slain heroes.This stage reading is dedicated to the life of George Floyd and a portion of the proceeds from each ticket will go to the Equal Justice Initiative as seen in JUSTMERCY.
Pictured on the backdrop of a fairytale, some heavy issues will be explored in this play. As the whole town prepares for the big event, Cindy, already depressed, contemplates suicide. Who will rescue Cindy? Her Father, who was once her hero, sides with her wicked Step Mother to leave her home alone. Who will tell her where to find the dress, and what time to be home? It seems very bleak for Cindy. However, make no bones about it – in the twinkling of an eye everything changes -there WILL be a happy ending!
