In the southern Black Church, a person's image and reputation is everything. So what happens when a high profile preacher's wife discovers that her husband has a fetish for young men? In this riveting new production, Deborah does what you'd least expect. She takes control of the situation and refuses to play the victim. She hires him a lover. The Contract is a titillating and provocative new dramatic play that explores one of the last taboos in the Black Church. It's what everyone knows but refuses to talk about. Come see the premiere of this new work, written by James Webb, a fresh young voice in the American theatre.

Ensemble includes Albert Christmas (Broadway's Ragtime), Joy Jones (Lincoln Center's Zaide), and James Webb (Off Broadway's Birthday Party in Madagascar).
