Lee Weaver reprises “Piercing the Darkness.”
The definitive St. Augustine play at two venues
In the past year Lee Weaver has performed his “The Secret,” a play about The Spanish Inquisition, in the NYC Off-Broadway Fringe Festival; his movie on homelessness and PTSD, “The Box,” is now in competition at the Sundance Film Festival. In his most recent original play,“The Witness,” he portrays a self-confessed, former racist who tells the story of the Civil Rights Struggle in the 1960’s, particularly in St. Augustine. Many local engagements TBA. He has recently presented his Stand- Up comedy routine, “SRO,”and his “Story Weaver,” a collection of tales about “growing up.”
Now, Weaver is dusting off his St. Augustine Story (2012) – “Piercing the Darkness.” Weaver says it is the history of St. Augustine from Ponce to the Present day in which three Light Keepers (Weaver plays all three!) from our own St. Augustine Lighthouse give the “history lesson.” It is historically accurate, humor-laced and with its own music for a sing-along, “Come Up the Steps of the Lighthouse With Me.” He says, “folks laugh and learn at the same time.”
