Playwright Tonia Nia Blu Williams presents the stage play “The SisterHoods” at the Paul Roberson Theatre inside the Northwest Activities Center in Detroit, MI. “Of all my professional and personal accomplishments,” says playwright Tonia Nia Blu Williams, “this work of dramatic production is the one I am most proud of. I hope the audience enjoy it as much as I did creating it because I honestly do believe in putting my expertise to work for my audience and I hold high standards to myself due to the fact that my goal is to produce a body of work that will be considered as timeless pieces.
The SisterHoods is a tale of love, regret and redemption, with a mind blowing ending of how the game of survival has no boundaries when it comes to one getting what they desire most. The storyline focuses on the relationship of four sisters, of which three of the sisters grow up and become something they desired to be since childhood; “female gangsters / queen pins” of the highest ranking drug cartel in America. Montana, Queenie and Jade are fearsome drug lords with an old school mentality and a new school look. They are a force to be reckoned with. Sasha; the sister who biologically owns the right to the title “female gangster / queen pin” grows up and becomes something she desired to be since childhood; Scarsdale New York’s most brilliant and ambitious district attorney. Although her career of choice is on a different side of the law, Sasha lives by the promise that she made to her father… to “LIVE BY THE BOND, DIE FOR THE BLOOD”.
Drug lord Griselda Blanco’s true story is the inspiration behind ‘The SisterHoods’ tale, in addition to Tonia Nia Blu Williams love for the 1983 version of the movie Scarface.
