It’s no secret that life isn’t fair. Growing up we quickly learn that time isn’t on our side. The good will prevail over bad and most importantly, we learn that life isn’t fair.
This is something that most people hear from older siblings followed by a life lesson at some point n their teen to young adult years. Derrell Lawrence has taken this life lesson and is bringing from the screen and taking it to the stage.
LIFE ISN’T FAIR SYNOPSIS
This “Powerful, Emotional, Dramatic” stage production is adapted from award-winning independent film Life Isn’t Fair by Derrell Lawrence. For some people life is simple, but for Ricky Jones it’s been everything but. Forced to deal with tragedy at a young age (witnessing the untimely death of his Mother and Sister) mad and upset, Ricky turned his back on God, but not before being incarcerated. Ricky is up for prison release and ready for a new start and life. With a fresh outlook on life, he also understands who has kept him. Now ready (and willing) to give his life to Christ, he also understands that the devil is always working and nearby. Come be a witness as Ricky struggles at the crossroad of being God’s Child or Satan’s Angel.
