From March 16 through April 8th, 2012.
The Alliance Theatre Lab of Miami is presenting the World Premiere of “Off Center of Nowhere” by Resident Playwright and Ensemble Member David Michael Sirois.
Jackie, a 17-year-old Brooklyn high school student, has a secret to tell her parents. But, in confessing her one secret, it unleashes a string of confessions that can destroy her whole family. As the story unfolds, the characters are faced with moral conundrums that deal with abortion, racism and religion.
David Michael Sirois is a Connecticut born theatre artist who wrote and directed his first play, 3 for Lunch, at Broward College in Davie, Florida. At Broward, he would successfully act, write and direct many more of his full lengths and one acts. David submitted his work to the Kennedy Center Playwriting Competition where he was a finalist in both the 10-minute play and the short play categories.
His first world premiere, Brothers Beckett, was produced at Alliance Theatre Lab and has won the Miami New Times Best New Play Award for 2011, Best of MiamiArtzine, Best of Florida Theatre on Stage, The Silver Palm and is recommended for the ATCA/Steinberg Award. He’s acted, written and directed at many schools and professional theatres including: Broward College, New World School of the Arts, Barry University, Lynn University, Frenchwoods Festival, Coral Springs Institute, New Theatre, Promethean, Mosaic, Gablestage, Caldwell, Florida Stage, The State Theatre Project, Lake Worth Playhouse, and is an acting ensemble member and the resident playwright at Alliance Theatre Lab.
“This play deals with the fragility of belief systems, and the lengths a person is willing to go to as long as honesty is the foundation,” says Sirois.
