Two-Time Telly winner JD Lawrence, writer & Director of BET's The Clean Up Woma Presents JURY DUTY, the hilarious new stage play opens August 24th @ BBKINGS in the heart of NYC. The play stars: “The King Of Dramedy” JD Lawrence, Love and Hip Hop’s Tara Wallace and from Thisis50.com, Vivian Billings.
Inspired by actual events, the story takes place in a local courtroom where a young man has been killed and another is fighting for his life. High School student Jamal Jones has had several run-ins with the law and is on trial for the murder of a fellow classmate and rival gang member. All the evidence points towards Jamal including an eyewitness that places him at the scene of the crime. Can the prayers of a mother save her son from a prosecutor with the highest conviction rate in the country and a judicial system that has failed so many young black and Hispanic men?
Well, now you can put your detective skills to work and decide if Jamal really did it, serve JURY DUTY and deliver the verdict or just sit back and watch as it all unfolds in the soul stirring, hilarious, interactive "who done it", that will have you on the edge of your seat guessing to the very end. Only God can turn a MESS into a MESSAGE, a TEST into a TESTIMONY, a TRIAL into a TRIUMPH and a VICTIM into a VICTOR.
