Acclaimed playwright, Christine Melton has placed her signature spin on the play ‘Still Life Goes On‘. ‘Still Life Goes On‘ is this year’s most celebrated tour-de-force production that deftly tackles the issues of family, money and race. Melton’s version has already received rave reviews from critics like Rebecca Faulkner who called it an “important and deeply poetical piece of political theater.” Thomas Farrell, producer of ‘Memphis’ on Broadway said, “I love the characters…I can’t put the script down.”

This four character show is set in 1968 Greenwich Village, at Buster’s Nightclub. Behind the scenes is an America that is filled with race riots and peace demonstrations. This turmoil is echoed in the play, as the characters respond to an unexpected arrival which forces them to confront their scandalous pasts, unrequited longing and family’s dark history.

Still Life Goes On‘ is set to become the next big theatrical sensation. The play will be directed by Broadway veteran Count Stovall, who has been involved in Broadway productions of ‘Cat on a Hot Tin Roof‘ and ‘A Streetcar Named Desire.’ The music is provided by the incomparable Tyrone Brown (Max Roach, Grover Washington Jr., Rachelle Ferrell – Fame).

You can join the production team as they prepare to delight audiences in New York, by providing financial contributions to their Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. With your financial support, ‘Still Life Goes On‘ can hire the actors, production crew, sets and theatrical space that they need. With your assistance, this seminal new production can find the audience it needs to begin a dialogue about these important cultural, political and human issues.

Aside from financial contribution there are other ways you can help, the producers would encourage you to spread the news about ‘Still Life Goes On‘ through social media, email or personal conversation.
