Mama Kay as Lena Younger in A Raisin in the Sun

By: Mama Kay Lawal-Muhammad

“I Played Lena Younger (“Mama”) -  Walter and Beneatha’s mother. The matriarch of the family, Mama is religious, moral, and maternal. She wants to use her husband’s insurance money as a down payment on a house with a backyard to fulfill her dream for her family to move up in the world.”

Also featured in this play were Nu World Art Ensemble instructors Parrish Allison and Stevanie Williams.


The Bad Oracle Review:

“Veteran actors Kay Lawal-Muhmmad (Lena Younger) and Carltaise Ransom (Walter Lee Younger) helm a stellar, potent ensemble cast, one of the best I’ve seen on the Baltimore small stage.  Lawal-Muhammad hits every aching beat, her matriarch a dethroned queen seated on a decaying couch, trying to graft her spine onto a son made frustrated and weak by his circumstances… Stephanie Anita Thomas-Williams is a steely-eyed Ruth whose palpable, heartbreaking desperation to fly the coop is instantly relatable…”

On Sunday October 14th, Godwin Mongi stopped by the WombWork BlackBox Theatre on Walbrook Avenue to say hello to Mama Kay, Mama Rashida, and members of the WombWork Productions, Inc. family. He has been working in Tanzania as a Master Virtues Facilitator, and was stopping through Baltimore before attending a conference in Washington, D.C.. As a showing of goodwill and support, WombWork Productions, Inc. donated $1,000 towards Godwin Mongi to support the growing WombWork Productions, Inc.-inspired branch in Tanzania. This allows for a greater connection and relationship with connections back in East Africa.
