Veteran Hollywood actor, writer and producer Harold Sylvester will star in the world premiere of Tour Detour, a play written by award-winning playwright Harold Ellis Clark. The play, a co-production of Ashè Cultural Arts Center and HEC Communications, also stars acclaimed stage actor Kenneth Brown, Jr. Award-winning theatrical director John Grimsley will direct the production.
Tour Detour surrounds a son, who prior to traveling to Afghanistan for his fourth tour of duty as a U.S. Air Force explosives ordnance technician, visits his father, who's serving a life sentence at a central Louisiana prison. They haven't seen each other in more than 20 years.

Clark was honored for Tour Detour as one of two finalists for the 57th Annual (2013) Stanley Drama Award during an awards ceremony held March 18, 2013 at The Players Club in Manhattan, NY. Previous recipients of the Stanley Drama Award include Tony Award-winning playwrights Jonathan Larson (Rent) and Terrance McNally (Kiss of a Spiderwoman). Clark also was named a finalist for Stage West's (Fort Worth, TX) 7th Annual (2013) Southwest Playwriting Competition for Tour Detour.
For several seasons, Sylvester, a graduate of both Tulane University and St. Augustine High School (Kenneth Brown, Jr.'s also a St. Aug grad), starred as "Griff" on FOX-TV's Married with Children, and in the classic film An Officer and a Gentlemen, starring Richard Gere. Sylvester's other acting credits include CSI: Miami (CBS-TV), Cold Case (CBS-TV), NYPD Blue (ABC-TV), A Different World (NBC-TV and Hill Street Blues (NBC-TV). As a screenwriter, Sylvester penned scripts for NYPD Blue, and the critically acclaimed TNT movie Passing Glory, starring Andre Braugher (FOX-TV's Brooklyn Nine Nine).
