September 1st, 2015, New York, NY — There’s no breaking the bond two sisters have with one another, no matter how different their personalities may be. Sister’s Keeper is a story of love, friendship, family and HIV. It follows the lives of two sisters, Eve and Margo, who refuse to let their different lifestyles cause them to forget their common bond. When crisis strikes, they are reminded that family is the refuge we run to for safety in the time of trouble. Sister’s Keeper is a re-write of the play Miracles, which was originally written by the late Lynda J. Jones in 1999 and performed in front of hundreds of people. Lynda’s daughters, Terri Jones Salter and Sherri Jones collaborated with Cordelia Donovan to continue their mother’s legacy. Sister’s Keeper is co-written by Cordelia Donovan and Terri Jones Salter, and directed by Cordelia Donovan. All public relations for the production is being handled by Sherri Jones. Sister’s Keeper will have its world premiere September 10th – 14th in Theater for the New City’s 2015 Dream Up Festival.
This production shines the spotlight on a topic still considered taboo in many communities. Sister’s Keeper aims to begin an impactful narrative around the HIV/AIDS epidemic in today’s society with its acclaimed cast and soulful music and lyrics written by two time Grammy award winner Kyle Bynoe of CMORE5 Music, Inc.
