After rehearsal...Jamil and Lenore on the train.

What Would Jesus Do? is an interfaith, intergenerational play about a God-fearing wife and mother whose exposure to HIV by her "down low" husband inspires her to take action when she asks what would Jesus do? The surprising answer may just bring their Biblically-correct church to its knees! Live music infuses this timely and (unfortunately) still relevant story of HIV in America which challenges the faith and secular communities to do more to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic, starting with our houses of worship and our black theatres. Excerpts (monologues and/or scenes) of What Would Jesus Do? have been presented for HIV/AIDS prevention programs at colleges, churches, prisons, local health fairs, conferences, workshops, youth and senior centers.
