The male members of the cast of Davrielle Burrows' stage play "The Good Girl's Guide to Love and Romance".
Drama, romance and comedy -- it's all to be had in Davrielle Burrows' first full-length stage play "The Good Girl's Guide to Love and Romance" that addresses love, sex, friendship and faith between four single friends who grapple with the issues in a hilarious and heartfelt way.
"The Good Girl's Guide to Love and Romance" is a tale about four 20-something girlfriends who started a "purity pact" together as children. They promise to wait for true love and until they get married to have sex, virtues that parents encourage their children to adopt as they grow through young adulthood.
The play catches up with them over a decade later as vibrant, successful and attractive women faced with the realities of modern dating. And they are grappling with their traditional values against their desire for love. They question whether abstinence is really what's best for them.
"I call it kind of a reverse 'Sex and the City', said Burrows.
"You see it play out in their relationship dynamics. Each of the girls has a love interest, someone she's relating to on a relationship level, and then you see their friendship, and you see the way that the pact that they all joined into, how it kind of keeps them together. But now that they're all questioning it, you're not really sure they're all going to stay friends, you're not sure the guys are going to stick around. But it's very funny, so it keeps it nice and light.
Starring in this play are TAP, Myah Moss, Jewel Thompson, Ophir Neymour, Rossano Deal, Rashad "Shad Fer" Ferguson,
Alex "Stacs" Hepburn, Wynton Moore and Basil Armbrister.
The cast of strong, savvy and ambitious ladies alongside their charming love interests brings a witty and charming dynamic that Burrows said will keep the audience in stitches. She said the unique yet outlandish scenarios make it a play that will keep people on the edge of your seat.
The play is expected to be a laugh-filled experience that both men and women can enjoy. She said the question for the ladies will be whether true love can really wait.
"The Good Girl's Guide to Love and Romance" will take to the stage tonight, for one night only, at the Myles E. Munroe Diplomat Center; doors open at 7:30 p.m. and curtains go up at 8 p.m. Due to some mature subject matter, it is not recommended for children under 12 years of age.
