 “No One Hears The Night – A Modern Jazz Tale” by Thomas Mason, Jr. 


"Grandma's Christmas" by Joy Hunter Carroll

... and all that Jazz ... 

"Almost There: Sounds of the Season," featuring Thomas Mason, Jr.'s newest one-act play, "No One Hears The Night- A Modern Jazz Tale" explores Jazz legend, Big Larry Tate's attempt to convince his protégé to leave NYC for a sweet deal with a LA based entertainment company before the music stops. And "Grandma's Christmas" by Joy Hunter Carroll, awakens a Mother's wanderlust with the realization that her 3 adult children are still living at home. She decides to take matters into her own hands; Grandma's headed for Hawaii, a tropical feast and a dream come true. Aloha!

MISSION: Live Garra Theatre, Inc., a professional theatre, endeavors to employ the cultural arts as a way to address universal social-life issues: to ‘live Garra’ (Portuguese for prevail), means to go-the-distance and never give up; to illuminate all facets of a multicultural society; fostering cross-cultural understanding of the many ethnic voices in the community, reinforcing the value of diversity, strengthening the social connections among people. 

As a resident company and managers of the Silver Spring Black Box Theatre, the organization operates out of the space as a performance training studio; an incubator for a core repertory of skilled poets, playwrights, and artists, as well as providing a 'safe harbor' for the youth. Live Garra Theatre aspires to fill the void of culturally specific Theatre, preserving the unique legacy of the African-American heritage and contribute to the survival of Black Theatre.
