“Lord, When Will I Get My Rose?”
A Single Woman’s plea to God
You don't want to miss this heartfelt gospel stage play that tells the story of 30 year old Latisha Johnson, a single mother who is a very educated, successful, self sufficient, Christian woman and has grown weary with being alone. She spends all of her time raising her two sons, working in upper management at a very prominent
company and as the church clerk but she has come to a place in her life where she is ready to settle down and be married. Latisha is tired of waiting on the Lord for the spouse God has ordained for her and since God isn't moving fast enough, join us on June 29th at the 2019 DC Black Theatre & Arts Festival to see what the outcome is going to be when she takes matters into her own hands.
Again, you don't want to miss it!
