One person Play “ Hoodwink”

SYNOPSIS: Albie Davis is a singer with a heart of soul. But the world doesn't seem to be ready for Albie's blend of outspoken word, creative freedom and righteous take on pop culture, hip-hop and hairweaves. In order to find her way in a world dominated by Beyonces, booty, bling and the rappers who love them, Albie makes a drastic choice- a choice that might lead her to the brink of either mega-fame or mega disaster. And maybe, just maybe, the love of her life. Melanee Murray is a writer, actor and filmmaker whose short film Race Anonymous recently won the Best Drama Award at the Edmonton Short Film Festival.
