I cannot begin to
explain how moved I was by your play 'Trials,
Tribulations and Triumphs, The Sequel. All families
go through things and we never believe we can get
through it. But because you shared with the world
how faith kept you and your family, I know I can
walk in that same faith. I was truly moved .."can't
wait for Part 3"
WOW I was very
impressed. Oh my goodness. The Set was really, really
good, I thought. The young lady who plays Trinity her
spirit was so sweet, that has to be how she really is
"smile". WE LOVED, LOVED, LOVED, the daddy!! Did he sit
under your husband to get him down so well? I mean he
was dead on and he was hilarious. It was a good mix it
kept the play from being so "serious" even though the
issue is very serious. You really had a good cast.
The Play was the
best I've seen in years. I laughed and cried and
cried and cried. I Loved it!
IT!!!~~~Sincere in Jesus~~~JP
I seen it once & will
be seeing it again! I loved it & can't wait for the
I witnessed the
play and it was full of memorable moments. You could
feel the energy and passion throughout the entire
play. Many times I got out of my seat as the show
came to life and you just knew you were right there
when it all occurred. I say VJ Plays are a must see
from now on and if you want to see real life in a
play I encourage you to check them out.
V.J Washington I just
watched the play based on the book, They Rose Above It
All! You did a great job! Keep up the good work! God is
really using you to bless others! Continue to tell
others how far he has brought you and your family!
This was an
awesome play, from the beginning to the end it had
you attention. For all that missed it, I am truly
sorry for you. But I will tell you that when it
comes back around, you better be first to get your
ticket. Because it was sold out and I will be going
again to see it, so that's one ticket already gone.
But this play is a must see and it will also
enlighten those out of touch with reality. But
really you have to catch it!!!!
Hello! Thanks so much
for having me apart of this true story brought to the
stage. I thank God for the opportunity to be apart of
this great production. The play went very well and we
all brought it to the stage. Let me know if you are
going to bring it to Conyers, because I will make sure I
will return for the play. Thanks so much Washington
family! God Bless!!!!!!
The best play I've
ever seen in years go and see it when it comes around
again very soon.
Loved the book and
was very excited for my sister that this was being
produced as a stage play. I got to see the play; which
made you sad at times and made you laugh other times. It
was very heartbreaking to realize that in today’s
society injustice is alive and we need to keep on
telling the stories so that others will know.
Congratulations Neita on a job well done!
and real! "They Rose Above It All" was a realistic
and touching account to the episodes plaguing our
community daily. I was in complete awe of the play,
great storyline, awesome actors!
A dream come to
fruition. The play, "They Rose Above It All," is the
culmination of a long struggle to get the truth about
the traumatic incident that happened to an innocent,
honor roll, Christian young lady out to the people. It
is a warning to the young and a reminder to the old of
the current and past realities in our lives.
The play was adapted
from Mrs. Washington's book of the same title. It made
you laugh, made you cry, and strengthened your faith in
rising above injustice and your faith in God. To get the
most from the play and really understand some of what
the family went through, read the book.
The actors and the
intimate setting brought the play to life. You are right
there almost on stage watching everything unfold. You
see and feel the pain and fear of the young lady, her
family and friends. The character portrayal of the
father was dead on. The actor really captured the
essence of Mr. Washington.
Thank you Mrs.
Washington for proving that dreams can come to fruition,
and for reaffirming our faith that with God you can rise
above it all.
The screen pay
"They Rose Above It All" by VJ Washington was an
excellent production. Some of the elements of the
play depicted what can really happen to anyone while
just driving. Some of the scenes where very
humorous, while other scenes were serious emotional
tear jerkers and sad.
You could really
feel the emotions of the trials and tribulations
that one can face at any given time. The play showed
how the victim had to cry out to Jesus Christ for
help in her situation. The victim that experienced
the police brutality had little resources to help
her as she was going through her trials and
tribulations in terms of legal recourse but through
her belief in Jesus Christ, she knew when she called
on God that He would hear her cry and come to her
victim had strong family support who also believed
in Jesus Christ, she knew all she had to do was to
call on Jesus and He was with her throughout the
ordeal. It was an excellent play that held my
attention through out the entire performance.
The cast was very
good. I am anxious to see the sequel to the play to
see how justice was really served to the victim at
the end of her police brutality ordeal. It's a must
see play when the sequel comes out in production.
The play was good entrainment even though the
content of the play was rather sad but a reality in
today's law enforcement environment. A well done
