Jaz Dorsey's HEADSHOTS kicks off Metro Parks and Rec's New Play Reading Series (Nashville)

My song cycle HEADSHOTS will serve as a curtain raiser for the kick off of the fourth year of the Metro Nashville Parks Theatre Department's New Play Reading Series, to be performed by the amazing HILARY MORRIS. HEADSHOTS is a set of five songs from my various musicals - kind of a mini cabaret.

Khalil Kain's LAMBS TO SLAUGHTER at Blackboard - Monday, December 8 (NYC)

Please click image to enlarge.

Lambs to Slaughter
Written and Directed by Khalil Kain

Lambs To Slaughter tells the story of a mourning single mother living alone now in the city after the murder of her son Emmett. Her name is Joan. Time seems to stand still for Joan as she is overwhelmed by her grief. With help from her neighbor and best friend Athena and the care of her good friend Paul, Joan is able to wrestle with the memories of her son Emmett.  Like Athena and Paul, Emmett wants to make sure that his mother safely navigates her mourning process. The loss of a child will always be devastating, but the loss of a child to gun violence could easily be too much to bear for any parent. There is no escape for Joan. Or is there? Love and a life away from this dark place is offered to Joan by Paul. Can Joan learn to love with her broken heart? With the help of her friends and encouragement from her son, Joan is able to make the choice that allows her to live again.
