“The Cost” a Staged Reading

Saturday, October 22 at 7PM


The BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, located at 199 Chambers Street in Manhattan, will host a staged reading of The Cost written by Aquaila Shene Barnes and directed by Barbara Montgomery on Saturday, October 22.

The Cost is a play that follows the behind-the-scenes drama of the Foster family as they maneuver one of the most exciting political races in Ohio history. The brain trust of the campaign is Nicole Foster, sister and campaign manager to candidate Thomas Foster, Jr. Respected as a gifted politician in her own right, Nicole must take a back seat as their father has chosen her less-talented brother as “the one” to become the youngest and first African American governor of Ohio. Race, gender, sexuality and a parent’s unfulfilled promise set the direction this race will take.

Following the staged reading, there will be a Q&A session. In lieu of tickets, donations will be accepted for this performance.
