Writer and director Tanya Taylor's "Absent from Body" hits the stage in Downtown Lafayette at Cite des Arts in less than two weeks.
General admission tickets are on sale for $12 for two performances, which are scheduled for June 27 and 28 at 7:30 p.m. Reservations may be made by calling 337-291-1122 or by going to www.citedesarts.org
The play centers around Terrance Tyrone Watkins, III, a self centered, self-serving, egotistical, narcissist who believes the whole world evolves around him, until one day the reality of that world meets him face-to-face. Yet, Terrance chooses to be in denial.
Comedic twists ensue as Terrance flaunts his good looks, antagonizes the women, and takes for granted his family. Terrance's world turns unexpectedly tragic and there are lessons learned too late. However, the story does restore a sense of hope to those who love others who travel the wrong path.
