  • About the event

    Set in the 90’s, DITWR is a play about five San Bernardino women that maintain their childhood bond in spite of fame, tragedy, poverty, and the decline of love in their own homes. Both career women, Bernice finds her marriage in shambles as she sits in a welfare office, while the fabulous Nicki obsesses over the bondage she feels comes with love. In the midst of being interrogated by a detective after her fiance is killed, Tia is shattered by the realization that her unborn child will be fatherless. On the flip side, Reeci is the woke’ drug dealer that refuses to be a victim of social hypocrisies, and Sheena is the full figured songstress that keeps everyone together while her insecurities break her apart!   

    The stories on stage are a live adaptation of author T'ana Phelices' books, Jaded Diamonds and Pigs & Pearls. In 2015 she directed and produced the original work, The Diamond Monologues, and now the show is ready for an official tour.

    T'ana Phelice

    T'ana was born and raised in the heart of San Bernardino, California. If you know anything about those parts, you know that life there isn’t typically silver spoons, packaged with shopping sprees down rodeo drive. For her, it’s been all about humble beginnings.  As a child she experienced poverty, encountered violence, and watched her mother struggle through abusive relationships. As a young adult she found herself mirroring the generation before her, prompting the need for change.

    In 2012 she wrote her first title, JADED Diamonds, and in 2016 she directed and produced, The Diamond Monologues, a theatrical production based on protagonists from her books.  In addition to building her resume as a thriving playwright, she is currently pursuing a degree in cinematography at a Los Angeles based college.
