“ This 60-minute one act production is more of a message than a story with a cast of six led by three singing sirens, two nymph dancers, one jester narrator and an optional choir/group. Together they spread hope, peace and optimism while fusing spirituals, dances and secular songs by famous composers Ron Paley, Woody Woods, Jeri Brown who serves as playwright, producer, jester, artistic and choral director. The cast: Siren Thessa Natasha Thomas Siren Mere Maureen Batt Siren Water Linda Carvery Nymph Brigitte Aucoin Nymph Audrey Barber Jester Jeri Brown & Denis Dineen The setting is an all-night coffee shop, all night seaside ritual or any all-night location in Anywhere City where the lost, the bums, the riff-raff, and the desperate of life have come together on the longest night of the year, the winter solstice, Dec. 21st.”
