This fall, my newly formed production company, Jackson Brown Entertainment, will be taking my brand new stage play, IT IS WELL, to Indianapolis, IN; Muncie, IN; Louisville, KY; and Marietta, GA. We will also be producing a video of the production which will allow us to reach an even larger audience.
Synopsis of IT IS WELL
Delphi Matthews is dying, or at least that is what the doctors are saying, so she knows it is time, past time actually, to get her little rag tag family in order. She is the mother of three daughters and none of them are ready to live life without her. Her oldest daughter, Cadence, appears on the surface to have everything in control but really, she is a scared little girl inside who wants nothing more than to be her mama’s little girl again. The middle girl BeBe is a drug addict who tries to be a good mother to her daughter, Jerycho, but the addiction seems stronger than her love for anyone, including herself. The youngest, Ashya, is the most put together of the daughters, but she is young and even though she tries to be strong for her mother and the rest of her family, she is terrified of what life will be like without her mother Delphi. Finally, Delphi also feels responsible for her older sister, Carlithia, who has lost everyone she loves, including her husband and son in a brutal car crash. So, instead of spending her last days trying to get herself ready for the hereafter, Delphi, instead, must quickly put her family through a crash course of what it is like to live their lives without her there to direct them.
