This weekend, the Miracles Club will premier Nabeeh Mustafa and Floyd Cruse's "On Life's Term: The Middle Passage."
Originally produced in 2005, "The Middle Passage" will play at 7 p.m. on March 27 and 28 and April 3 and 4.
The play, written by Mustafa and adapted by Cruse, tells the powerful stories of those who suffer addiction disorders and the "middle passage" of recovery from drugs and alcohol. A parallel to physical slavery, "The Middle Passage" shows the effects of addiction on individuals, families and the community, and looks at the important role of recovery organizations.
All shows will be performed at the Miracles Club, 4069 NE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd. in Portland. Tickets can be purchased at Elevated Coffee, Christopher's, Geneva's, One Stop Record, Reflections and at the Miracles Club. Tickets cost $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $7 for students. Group of 10 tickets cost $100.
Miracles Club was established in 1992 by African Americans so that all people in recovery in North/Northeast Portland would have a sanctuary where they could maintain their sobriety with culturally specific support and encouragement
