July 19: Soul on Fire The Musical
As a child, playwright and composer Tyrone Stanley witnessed the sexual abuse of a family member at the hands of a trusted friend. His play Soul on Fire The Musical tells the story of a young girl who takes matters into her own hands when the justice system fails to address the assault that shattered her life. The show makes its D.C. debut this Saturday at The Kennedy Center at 7:30 p.m. Stanley says the message is that sexual assault is a universal problem.
“Everyone, no matter what your demographic background is, has been touched by sexual abuse and rape in some way,” he says. “It’s everyone’s dilemma. It’s everyone’s problem and we need to band together and face it together.”
