RECAP & PHOTOS: “Breaking Down” Stage Play Premiere

On Friday, your team was able to be in attendance at the premiere of the stage play “Breaking Down”. Written and directed by Joshua K. Jenkins, “Breaking Down” is the first stage play produced under his new company The Press Play Co. Joshua has written plays in the past and has served as the director for First Baptist Church of Glenarden’s Christmas production for the past 3 years. The Christmas Production creates an even bigger buzz every year so there were many people waiting in anticipation to see how Joshua’s first company produced play would be like!

The Press Play Company, LLC is a faith based multimedia production company that exists to set precedence for entertainment purposes. They strive to create thought provoking, inspirational, and creative experiences for every audience. It’s the desire of the company to leave onlookers in awe, inspired with fresh perspectives on life and the circumstances and relationships it brings.

“Breaking Down” was centered around a struggling business owner trying to keep his business afloat and provide for his family. In spite of all the signs around him that should make him feel otherwise, Mr. Stewart continues to stay positive and hopes that attitude will spill over onto his employees. The play also follows the lives of the employees as they battle abuse, depression, and greed.

“Breaking Down” had a message that every person who believes in God can relate to. When times get hard and God is testing our faith, it’s important to not lose hope. It was obvious that this production tugged at the heart strings of the audience because there was a standing ovation as the cast took their final bows. If you missed this performance you’re in luck! “Breaking Down” will be back at the LIfe Center in October 2012. Please look for updates on
