Bringing Black Peoples Histories and contemporary stories to life! Through theatre and film.
Finding Beulah....when love finds it's way home
A play with song, dance and multimedia.
Finding Beulah is a love story of many parts the male and the female, the past and the future, African experience and the rest of the world; and with love in the mix anything can happen!
We see our lovers reincarnate at key times in human history, bringing to life ancient African civilizations, and sharing life lessons and experiences. We witness them learning how to and fighting to keep love alive in a possible near future. We are inviting our audiences to open themselves to the lessons of the past, and the possibilities of what they would want for the future. Together we hope to begin to explore the steps we need to take today to make that future a reality.
So whether you are ready for a great piece of entertainment or a call for action, come and join us on the epic journey from the past to the future, that is Finding Beulah......when love finds it's way home. We look forward to meeting you there.
