32 - Leaving Limbo
Leaving Limbo, by Valetta Anderson (2006 Essential Theatre Play Festival)

Her play LEAVING LIMBO was produced as part of the 2006 Essential Theatre Festival. Anderson’s full productions include HALLELUJAH STREET BLUES by Horizon Theatre, LEAVING LIMBO by Essential Theatre, TODAY (AT&T: Onstage Award) and SHE’LL FIND HER WAY HOME by Jomandi Productions, Kuntu Repertory Theatre, and Fisk University.

“The Essential Theatre was the essential ingredient in furthering my career as a playwright and expanding my voice into film by providing the one thing that is missing from most new play development processes, namely a full production. Without the Essential production, LEAVING LIMBO would be as unrealized as a pre-digital-era photograph languishing on a developed but not-printed roll of film.”
