"Decades of Day Work IV" at freefall Theatre February 27

Your Real Stories Productions presents the stories from the real life "help" in "Decades of Day Work IV," February 27, 2014 at 7:00PM at freefall Theatre, 6099 Central Avenue in St. Petersburg. The popular series mixes music, drama, poetry and spoken word to tell the stories of domestic day workers and their employers. This time the show features special guest storyteller, author playwright, Dr. My Haley, widow of Alex Haley and collaborator with him on the iconic book and television show, "Roots."

“Very special and enlightening.” “Powerful…extremely well told…(an) important contribution to social healing.” That’s what audiences say about the series. “Decades of Day Work IV” features the story of Dr. Haley’s grandmother, who was for most of her life, a maid. It also shares the stories of Alonza Wade, a local retired war veteran, whose mother ‘lived-in’ but couldn’t be ‘on’ Miami Beach in the 1940’s, ninety two-year-old Idessa Driver, whose mother threatened to quit and forced her depression-era boss to reconsider cutting her meager wages, and Elaine T. Woodward, who shared a 40-year sisterhood with her maid.

Mary will talk with Dr. My Haley and Lillian Dunlap, Ph.D. Administrative Director, Your Real Stories, Inc., Co-Director, “Decades of Day Work IV”.

Tickets are available by calling (727) 498-5205; online at; or in person at 6099 Central Avenue in St. Petersburg, FL.

Oh, the heck with it, let's just go to the movies. DEBBIE TERRY will discuss the upcoming Academy Awards.
