“Feeding A Monster” is written and executive produced by Detroit native Veronica Loving of Loving Productions, co-written by LaDarrion Williams, and directed by actor Art Evans. The play is based on the true story of Veronica Loving and her daughter Jazzmine Jackson self-published memoir “Feeding A Monster,” which tackles the sensitive and dark topic of sexual assault.
