Domestic Violence Drama at Month’s End
Domestic violence remains appallingly common. As much attention as it’s gotten in the recent past, the full impact of human trafficking in America remains largely in the shadows. This month with the debut of Blame, locally-based Destiny Productions takes a look at both in a drama being staged at the Marcus Center. Milwaukee playwright/director/producer Martha Austin delivers the story to Vogel Hall at the end of the month. From the official press release:
“Blame takes a spiritual look into the world of domestic violence, drug addiction, and human trafficking by identifying the root issues of pain, rejection, and abuse through the desperate eyes of the main character Tina, played by Orgentina Miller.” Also in the cast is seasoned stand-up comic Chastity Miller.
Austin is a local pastor who founded Still Waters Baptist Church back in 2000. Her theatre group Destiny Productions is a Christian-based production company that was founded in 2010. Her drama No Daddy debuted in 2011 in Milwaukee, Minneapolis and Chicago.
Blame runs Sep. 30 - Oct. 1 at the Marcus Center’s Vogel Hall. For more information, visit the Marcus Center online.
