    About This Production

    THE FIRST DEEP BREATH
    Written by Lee Edward Colston II
    Directed by Steve H. Broadnax III
    Featuring Opa Adeyemo, Lee Edward Colston II, Brandon Mendez Homer, Ella Joyce, Deanna Reed-Foster, Candace Thomas, Tony Todd & Keith A. Wallace

    Pastor Albert Jones and his family are proud leaders of the Mother Bethel Baptist Church and pillars of their community. Plans are being made for a special memorial service to honor their late daughter Diane on the sixth anniversary of her passing. But when Abdul-Malik, the eldest son whom Albert blames for her death, returns home from prison, the family’s veneer begins to crack as shocking revelations come to light. A ferocious new epic written by Lee Edward Colston II, The First Deep Breath chronicles the depths families will go to hide their skeletons from the outside world and each other.
