In this powerful play, three women experience a roller-coaster ride of emotions as they confront their father's death, long-buried family secrets and the startling revelation of an affair that almost tore their parents' marriage apart. “She’s Not Our Sister” is the highest-rated GMC World Premiere Gospel Play to date; and has since become a hit GMC television series titled, “She’s Still Not Our Sister.”
Sibling relationships are complicated–on a good day; but when three sisters learn that their estranged father may have left them a multi-million dollar inheritance, fireworks really ignite! Oh, and then there’s the half-sister they soon discover was one of their father’s deep secrets! Directed by Vernon Snoop Robinson, this powerful, intimate and inspiring musical stage play demonstrates the range of emotions the sisters experience as they attempt to deal with the unexpected death of their father, long-buried family secrets, and the shocking revelation of an extra-marital affair that nearly exploded their parents’ seemingly idyllic marriage. Questions of family loyalty, honesty and acceptance are raised; tempered by the realization that maybe love can conquer all.
The All-Star cast including Kellita Smith (“The Bernie Mac Show”), Drew Sidora (“The Game”), Azur-De (Somebody Help Me 2), Christian Keyes (Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes To Jail), Clifton Powell (Ray), Tony Grant (“Why Did I Get Married” and “A Madea Christmas” stage plays) and Jazsmin Lewis (“Meet the Browns”) brings this contemporary tale of family, tragedy and triumph to life. Johnnie Johnson's playwrite, "She’s Not Our Sister” will be released on DVD and Digital Download with an on-sale date of May 1, 2012 and is now available for pre-order.
