World Premiere - By Nikkole Salter

Directed By Cheryl Katz

A year ago in Brooklyn, two young men mourned the untimely loss of their best friend. In his honor they decided then and there that, despite their differences, no matter where life took them, they would take care of his younger brother and get together on the anniversary of his death to celebrate the life he should have had. So, on a cold day in the winter of 1996, these three twenty-somethings board a plane for Rio De Janeiro for a taste of the good life: sun, fun and, of course, women paid to serve - What better way to pay homage to a fallen friend? But what starts out as a joyride takes an unexpected turn and the three sex tourists find themselves in a situation that will change their friendships and their lives forever.

Starring: Anton Floyd, Jaime Lincoln Smith and Terrell Wheeler

Design Team: Steve Brown (Sound Design), C. Murdock Lewis (Set Design), Jorge Arroyo (Lighting Design), Deborah Caney (Costume Design), Liz Cesario (Production Manager), and Mary Ellen Allison (Stage Manager)
