Ashe' Cultural Arts Center comes to the Rescue for Local Playwright

Ashé Cultural Arts Center comes to the rescue for New Orleans playwright, Pamela Davis-Noland (Keen-Amity Publishing & Entertainment) as she experienced creative censorship for her controversial play depicting a modern may Jesus who is portrayed by an African-American male. Earlier this summer, the play was cancelled and the tour shut down in an East Texas town. Ashé has offered the playwright a venue to house her work.

WHY: After getting word about the creative censorship of the play, Carol Bebelle (Co-Founder and Executive Director) of Ashé CAC, personally called the playwright and offered her as many dates as she wanted as long as the calendar permittted.

WHAT: THE UNACQUAINTED: A GOSPEL, written by Pamela Davis-Noland is the story of the ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ with a modern day perspective and today’s challenges using biblical text to navigate the Savior’s journey with humor and witty characters that exist in everyday society.
