Feeding A Monster, the stage play is an adaptation of author Veronica Loving and co-author Jazzmine Jackson's memoir Feeding A Monster. The memoir is unlike any other book that addresses sexual assault. It follows the dramatic real-life story of Loving and Jackson who were victims of a predator who happened to be the husband and father of the mother and daughter duo. It details Loving's 21-year marriage to her husband who was a minor-league baseball player and what happens when their marriage took a turn when Loving learned that the man she loved was a sexual assault predator living in her home. The women in this book speak candidly about their personal experience with sexual assault. With this play, Loving and Jackson's goal is to raise awareness. The book is available at Amazon.com.
Loving and La Darrion Williams wrote the stage play, and actor Art Evans best known from the movie Die Hard 2 is onboard as director. The cast includes actors Fayley Patrice, DeJuan Christopher, Doyin Domingo, Conisha Wade, and Andre K. Jefferson.
