HOUSTON - Oct. 16, 2016 - PRLog -- Once again back to uplift and bring awareness to various issues plaguing the community, Black Girlz Productions has returned with a new stageplay entitled, "The Coffee Shop." The play centers around the shenanigans that often take place in the coffee shop which result in coffee shop owner, Ms. Carla and her new employee, Robin, dealing with the drama that comes with the territory and ultimately forcing them to walk in their truth.

The play is written, produced and directed by Shaneisha Dodson, the founder of Black Girlz Productions. Shaneisha Dodson was born in Arkansas and currently resides in Texas. She earned a B.A. in psychology at Grambling State University, a M.A. in counseling at Dallas Baptist University, and an Ed.S in adult learning at Walden University. Dodson has received numerous awards and accolades for her accomplishments and literary works: 2016 Black Women Are (Inspirational) Award Nominee, 2016 (2) Official Selections for her first screenplay, 2015 Best Playwright, 2015 Extraordinary Person Honoree, Who's Who of Small Business, Celebrated for being an entrepreneur during women's history month, 2011 African American literary award nominee, and 2011 Literary Excellence Award winner for her teen self-help book. In 2012, she took her love of the arts to the next level and founded Black Girlz Productions (BGP).

The play features Marissa Collier (Atlanta, GA), J.R. Marshall (Houston, TX), Precious Merenu (Houston, TX), Ron Clemons (Dallas, TX), Sherman Johnson (Orlando, FL), and Suswella Makaso (Wylie, TX). "I am excited about the opportunity to bring my latest work to the Houston area and bring awareness to the serious issue of sexual assault. I think it's critical due to the light sentences people have been receiving lately in various rape cases. Not to mention the recent discussion in the political arena about sexual assault. I think this subject is more important than ever." says Dodson about her latest project.

The play opens on Saturday, January 7, 2017 in Houston at MATCH – the Midtown Arts and Theater Center, located at 3400 Main Street, Houston, TX 77002. Curtain time is at 6:30pm local time. Tickets are available at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/coffee-shop-stageplay-tickets-27742204681.  The play will also travel to Arkansas for two showings on March 25th at 3pm and 7pm in North Little Rock.
