ALL OVER – A BLUES PLAY by Jamie J. Brunson is directed by Larry Moses and features a stellar cast of regional performers: Don W. Newton (Red-Eyed – The Bluesman), Cathy Simpson (Ernestine), Carl A. Anderson (Clive), Ashley Thornton (East), Harum “RJ” Ulmer, Jr (Chorus) and Larry Moses (Usherman).

With original blues music written by Jamie J. Brunson and composed by Philadelphia’s own bluesman, Georgie “The Blacksmith” Bonds, ALL OVER – A BLUES PLAY is an emotional powerhouse about a son, who confronts the father that abandoned him, in Hell.

ALL OVER – A BLUES PLAY has been developed through public readings and workshops across the county and significantly reworked thanks to feedback from national audiences, production teams and professional dramaturgical feedback. It has thrilled audiences at the National Black Theatre Festival Readers Theatre, and Providence Black Repertory Theatre (RI); moved Off-Broadway audiences at Abingdon Theatre (NYC) and Off-Off Broadway audiences at The Kitchen Theatre. The playwright, Jamie J. Brunson, working with a feedback team and composer to guide the development of this play with music since its inception, took the unexpected step of bringing the show to the Wilmington Fringe Festival for its world premiere in order to “offer a professionally developed African American work to the broadest possible regional audience at an affordable price in this economic climate.” Tickets for these performances are only $5 each, thanks to the Wilmington Fringe Festival resources. MEDIA INQUIRIES should be directed to the playwright at (302) 494-8043.

PLEASE NOTE: There is a ONE TIME fee of $5 for all Fringe Festival participants. This purchases a festival admission button that must be worn in order to attend Fringe performances. This is in addition to the $5 per person ticket fee. The proceeds from the sale of the Festival Admission Button offset the costs associated with producing the Wilmington Fringe Festival. The $5 festival admission button must be worn to all festival performances.

The Wilmington Fringe Festival is “The Great Arts Adventure” and Delaware’s wild and wonderful arts festival. After a thrilling second year, the Festival returns in 2011 with another five days of adventurous artists interested in pushing the boundaries of performance, visual art, and film, September 21–25.

Fringe Wilmington is made possible by generous support from its main sponsors: the Delaware Division of the Arts, the Delaware Lottery, Spark Weekly, and Mobius New Media.
