About the Play

Sisters Sky and Leva’s aunt have recently passed away.  While cleaning out her house, Sky finds her aunt's journal that chronicles  a steamy love affair to none other than...Harry Belafonte. Inspired by their aunt Jo, Sky and Leva create the Celebrity Dream Date app. 

About the Playwright

Keenya J. Jackson is an emerging Philadelphia playwright and author and one of the organizers of Media Arts Council play reading series- along with the wonderful Julie Zaffarano and Dave Ebersole. Keenya is a  co-founders of Jouska  PlayWorks at Simpatico Theatre in Philadelphia and a member of The Foundry, A Playwrights Lab at PlayPenn in Philadelphia. Her play The Return of the Shogun, the first play that she had read at MAC, was a 2023 semi-finalist for the 46th Bay Area Playwrights Festival (BAPF).  Readings series like this one at Media Arts Council helped to make that possible.

Keenya has a passion for Young Adult literature, this has led to her completing her first YA novel Much Ado About Something, co-authored with Sarah Hyson.

This is her second reading at MAC – she is very excited.
