Award-winning playwright Theo London explores explosive dynamics in his latest staged play Loving Him Is Killing Me. When a mother and daughter are obsessed with the same man, family bonds will be put to the test. Is blood thicker than water? In this hilarious and inspiring, yet scandalous family drama, an all-star cast including Angie Stone, NeNe Leakes, special guest actor Leon Robinson, Dottie Peoples, Lenny Williams, Pierre, Chico Benymon, Thomas Crawley, Calandra Glenn, Tamika Tanner. See this all star cast like you’ve never seen them before.
Loving Him Is Killing Me is a play about love, lust, and lies. The action focuses on the travails of the Johnston family. Liz, the doting mother, is tormented by the sudden death of her husband, Sonny. In order to ease her pain she turns to alcohol and prescription pills and her once close- knit family begins to crumble. Sebastian, her trusted family friend, and psychiatrist, tries to step in and offer her some much needed guidance. However, the wise- cracking antics and side- splitting humor of her close friends, Junebug- an amusing alcoholic, Mutha- a vivacious fun-going night club singer, and Miss Champagne- a sixty-nine year old diva who has young men wrapped around her thighs, are barely enough to ease her lonely days and nights. As a result, the antagonist, in the form of her daughter’s newfound boyfriend, slips into her home and plays a deadly game with her family. A game which uncovers smoldering desires, damaging accusations, and buried secrets; secrets which threaten to implode!
Theo London is well respected in the entertainment industry and no stranger to hit theatrical productions; having directed and been tour manager for several plays including Bishop Eddie L. Long’s “What a Man Wants, What a Woman Needs” and several others.
