Tennessee Women's Theater Project announces its cast for the first show of our 2017 – 2018 Season

Lines in the Dust
by Nikkole Salter

Synopsis: When her daughter loses out in the charter school lottery, Denitra Morgan is determined to find another way to escape their underperforming neighborhood school. The answer seems like a risk worth taking, but it could end up costing more than she imagined. More than half a century after Brown v. Board of Education, Lines In The Dust questions how far we've come and more importantly, where we must go from here.

  • Dr. Beverly Long, Ed.D. - Colette Divine. This is Collette's fourth show with TWTP. She played a variety of characters in the 2013 world premiere of "Voices of Nashville," toured with the show to area churches, schools and community centers, and returned for the Looby revival of "Voices" in 2015. In 2014, Colette played Patricia, a workaholic political aide to a right wing senator, in Lauren Gundersen's "The Taming." This year she recreated the role for an Inauguration Day reading of "The Taming" at the Nashville Public Library.

  • Denitra Morgan - Tamiko Robinsion Steele.Tamiko first appeared with the company in “Nickel and Dimed,” (2006), toured schools and other venues in the riveting one-woman show “Warriors Don’t Cry” (2010-2011), played several roles in 2011’s “Impressionism,” by Michael Jacobs, and was a memorable Cassandra, the clairvoyant housekeeper, in TWTP’s regional premiere of Christopher Durang’s “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike.”

  • Michael Di Maggio, P.I. - Alan Lee. Alan appeared in TWTP’s Season One production of Jane Anderson’s “Defying Gravity (2007), and last October helped to kick off TWTP’s 10th Anniversary Season as Ulysses in “Annapurna,” by Sharr White.
