CCC Presents Last Psalm’s “The Cradle is Rockin’ Me”
CLARKSDALE — Love, Mystery and Revenge make for an interesting combination. The Final Outcome can leave you spellbound and holding your breath, especially when it’s wrapped up in a Political Race.
“The Cradle is Rockin’ Me” unfolds in small town Daleyville, where young W.K. Nicholas, III is in the midst of a mayoral campaign. Two weeks prior to the election Nicholas’ campaign manager resigns under mysterious circumstances.
Right on cue Frances Morton Meriweather returns to Daleyville after a successful career in Washington, DC. Her return seems to be just in the nick of time for Mr. Nicholas. She is hired as his new campaign manager over the objection of his wild office manager Nola.
The first order of business for Ms. Meriweather is to meet Rev. Dr. Bishop H.B. Grant, prominent local pastor Nola’s father.
The final two weeks of the campaign are filled with unexpected twists and turns. Rev. Dr. Bishop H.B. Grant has some unfounded demands for his support, and as the seasoned Ms. Meriweather works to get young Mr. W.K. Nicholas elected she finds her interest more personal than political. Yes, The Cradle is Rockin’ Me.
Coahoma Community College will present George Stewart and the Last Psalms Urban Socio Drama, “The Cradle is Rockin’ Me” as part of its Black History Month celebration of Tuesday, Feb. 18 at 6 p.m. in the Georgia Lewis Theatre.
