Event Details

Based on her true-life story, Ehrhardt’s play is about, the importance of forgiveness and the power of vulnerability. You can’t give yourself to someone when you are not intact, when pieces of you are missing. In Look What Fell Out de Mango Tree, Debra uncovers a big secret that unlocks her ability to forgive and transforms her relationship with men. Seeking truth and understanding can’t heal you or undo the hurt. But it can unshackle your next steps, and free up the denouement of your own life. Because running away from something is not being free. Starring Christopher Grossett and directed by Grammy and Academy Award winner Paul Williams.

At the tender age of seven, Kingston, Jamaica native, DEBRA EHRHARDT started telling stories in a Mango tree to entertain herself and her friends. As she grew up, she dreamed of coming to America to study theatre. After graduating drama school in New York, she was advised by Producers and agents to lose her strong Jamaican accent as that would limit work for her. Easier said than done. Instead, she decided to write and perform her own stories based on her colorful life in Jamaica and has performed all over the world. Previous solo productions include Mango, Mango which received two NAACP Awards and Invisible Chairs, produced by David Strasberg at the Marilyn Monroe Theatre in West Hollywood and later optioned as a situation comedy by Fox and Cock Tales: Shame on Me! which garnered rave reviews. Her play, JAMAICA FAREWELL was optioned and produced by Rita Wilson (Tom Hanks wife) and Oscar-winner, Garry Marshall at the Falcon theatre and is currently optioned for film by Oscar winning Producer, Jeremy Thomas in London.

There will be a moderated post-show talk back with the artists immediately following the performance; all ticketholders are welcome to attend.
