Serenity Hill is a long term assisted living facility, with acute care, memory care and specialty care units, on the east coast of the United States. Serenity Hill began as a play. Written for the stage. To be performed live on stage.
As a play, it was in development with Hamner Theater until Covid-19 put live performances on hold. Serenity Hill now finds its debut in a new format with new dialogue, and current events.

FAITH: The Gospel According to George Michael is in development for performances in the spring, summer, and fall of 2020.
FAITH features Dr. Rev. Johnny Goodlove and his 1980s-style televangelism bringing you hope, love and faith with readings from the gospel (the album), sing-a-longs, testifying, healing, storytelling, call and responses — and his personal journey to accepting George Michael as his personal lord and savor.
Is there faith? What is faith? Who needs faith? Dr. Rev. Goodlove preaches and teaches that all the answers you need can be found in the lyrics of the 1987 Grammy Award Winning, Platinum Selling, and Breakout Solo Album FAITH by Wham! co-founder George Michael.
It takes pure theatrical wisdom to direct a play you’ve never seen before, with actors who didn’t audition, and a design team working on 6 other plays simultaneously and do it in less than a day! These are just the wild, willing, and wise leaders who will do it on March 2nd at Live Arts in 24/7.
When you create an overnight theater festival in 24 hours, the day after the inauguration, you may end up with an 8th, special bonus, presentation. With apologies and respect to Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jonathan Groff, 24/7, last night, presented the one and only performance of TRUMPILTON!
Created as part of 24/7, an theatre festival created in 24 hours, presented by Whole Theatre,
