Fringe Festival: “Speed Killed My Cousin”

November 18 – 24, 2013
  • Location: Ashé Cultural Arts Center
  • Address: 1712 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd, New Orleans, LA
  • Times: 8:30pm
  • Admission: Fringe tickets w/button, or $10 at door with $3 button.

Co-presented by Carpetbag Theatre, Inc., Ashé Cultural Arts Center and Junebug Productions.  Directed by Andrea Assaf. Performed by the Carpetbag Theatre ensemble, featuring:  Ashley Wilkerson, Bert Tanner, Linda Parris-Bailey, Starr Releford & Will Dorsey.  Speed Killed My Cousin is a timely, moving new play about an African American woman soldier who returns from Iraq with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).  The story unfolds as Debra, the main character, drives down the Long Island Expressway (L.I.E.) in New York.  As she struggles with flashbacks and memories, she tries to talk with her father about his experiences in the Vietnam War, and is visited by his cousin -- a Vietnam veteran who died mysteriously in a car crash shortly after his return. She also remembers her mother, and the women she left behind in Iraq, some of whom did not survive. Memories and flashbacks unfold before her, and in her rear-view mirror, as she drives. Ultimately she must decide whether to let go of the wheel, or to choose life.  Adult content.  Speed Killed My Cousin is a Carpetbag Theatre production, supported in part by the NPN Creation Fund, co-commissioned by the National Performance Network, Carpetbag Theatre, Junebug Productions, and Mason-Rhynes Productions. Ashe' Cultural Arts Center, Junebug Productions, Inc  and Carpetbag Theatre are all partners of the National Performance Network (NPN). This project is made possible in part by support from the NPN Performance Residency Program. Major contributors of NPN include the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Ford Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts (a federal agency,) the MetLife Foundation and the Nathan Cummings Foundation
