Mumia Abu-Jamal

Mumia Abu-Jamal:  What if good old mother earth had only 30 days till the big last blast?  That’s the hub of the wheel around which a humorous and very human play brought to us by that dynamic Davis duo Ossie and Ruby at the Playhouse in the park revolves.

Ruby Dee:  It takes a great deal of energy, and the piece is complex, you know, with the dances, and um.. the music and the book itself. This is the first time we’ve really pulled this podansical together.

Mumia Abu-Jamal: Take it from the top, a chance to begin again, to repudiate the greed, envy and hatred that conspires to deprive each and all of us of our slice of humanity. That’s the message delivered in a warm and somewhat wonderful way.

Ossie Davis: Because at the bottom line, and I believe this, that it’s not enough to believe, that life is worth living and that the world is worth saving. Once you believe it that you got to get out there and do your part.

Mumia Abu-Jamal: Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee as they take it from the top. This is Mumia Abu-Jamal.
