Simone, who can be seen on the HBO series Random Acts of Flyness, will star as Betty – a slave trapped in the underworld of the dead. The actress has also appeared in Boston Legal, Cold Case, Without A Trace and the hit sitcom All of Us. Her theatre performances include Hamlet, In the Footprint with The Civilians Theater Company in New York City and her role as Sylvia in the Two Gentlemen of Verona, which received favorable reviews from the Los Angeles Times.
"I'm so thrilled to be a part of Gunshot Medley and to work with such a talented cast and director, Desean Kevin Terry," says Simone Moore. "It's important that we tell these stories about our life in America, so we can understand ourselves better. Along with our rich black history, we have a 400-year-old slave past, which colors every aspect of our present daily lives."
Gunshot Medley is set in a haunted North Carolina graveyard and addresses the struggles against systemic racism. The play is also a co-production with Collaborative Artists Bloc, and tickets are available at www.roguemachinetheatre.net. The theatre is located at 1416 Electric Avenue in Venice.
