For Immediate Release

WEG Media Group, Arielle-Wren Inc., ATC Studios, Leigh Entertainment & Defining U Produce Off Broadway Play

New York, N.Y. (August 13, 2014) – Move over Keke Palmer, Zoe Saldana and Natalie Portman as New Jersey teens take over Broadway August 22 – 24, 2014 with three performances at the Roy Arias Studios, 300 West 43rd Street, between 8th and 9th avenues in New York City.
The stage play, Bitter As Beer, Sweet Like Daisy, written, directed, produced and performed by a gifted group of teenagers from New Jersey put their skills to the test as they invite their audience to take a sneak peak and explore the nature of the unconventional family. They ask the question: how do we deal with trauma? How does life go on?
Bitter As Beer, Sweet Like Daisy uniquely explores trauma and its effects on mental health. “Our play is not one to miss because its emotional truth and passion can help start a dialogue about these serious issues that’s so often cast aside,” says Teen Director Aaron Drill.
“A playwright can only create dead words – it’s the director and actresses that bring to life our words. Bitter As Beer, Sweet Like Daisy relates to not only those with mental illnesses, but to those who have family and friends who suffer from them. Watching my words come to life through the voice of these wonderful actors, there is just no better feeling,” says Teen Writer Mariah Ayscue.
Bitter As Beer, Sweet Like Daisy is the story of a girl, Rayne, who cares for her sister, Daisy that suffers from Dissociative Identity Disorder and her friend, Skylar, after the two were kidnapped for 3 years. The twist, turns and unique story-telling of the girls; allows the audience to want to help … but can they?
“Amazing, challenging, multi-layered … all from the mind of 17 year-olds,” says Charles E. Williams, executive producer, WEG Media Group. “I knew after seeing the work of Director Aaron Drill that I had to take this play to Broadway. We were not going to take NO for an answer. I had to let New York see what these New Jersey teens had to offer. I expect an astounding performance from them. Here we come Broadway!”
“The play comes at a time that is so relevant in today’s society,” says Renée E. Warren, executive producer, Arielle-Wren, Inc. The recent death of much loved comedienne Robin Williams is yet another sad reminder that, for many, depression and mental illness is a fight that even millions of dollars and the highest reaches of fame can’t always help. This play, with its creative elements, shows us that no group from 9 to 99 escapes the ills of this disorder. It’s a much attend!”
Directed by Aaron Drill and featuring Prentiss Marquis as Daisy, Gabriella, Musumeci-McGinn as Rayne, and Vivian Belosky as Skylar, is an original play by Mariah Ayscue about Dissociative Identity Disorder, mental health issues and family, gives the audience a glimpse at how destructive mental health issues are and can be; if not diagnosed. The play received rave reviews when performed in New Jersey with a standing ovation.
