The Gullah Geechee Angel Network, Wineglass Gullah/Geechee Productions and A Queen’s Dream Production presents, “Unbroken Chains”, written and acted by up-and-coming playwright Queen Christine Washington, along with a host of talented and highly skilled actors.

“Unbroken Chains” depicts the life of a young girl and her unconventional introduction to womanhood. Faith is naïve about the world around her, until her grandmother (Nana) exposes the harsh realities of her past and the reasoning for her mother’s (Hope) current struggles. Shortly after dealing with a personal family tragedy, Faith, herself, will come face-to-face with some of the very same hardships unfairly forced upon the woman before her.

This journey imprisons Faith to a repeated and broken legacy –while also freeing her mental state of the desire to perpetuate the exact same pain in the future.

“Unbroken Chains” is spoken in English, Geechee and Gullah.
