The gospel stage play For Better or for Worse? is coming to Chattanooga with a message of how unconditional love, from God and those we love, can change and restore.
Pastor Davilyn Williams, who hails from the metro Atlanta area, wrote, directs and stars in For Better or For Worse?, said she is excited to share this story of love and faith with the Scenic City.
“When I wrote this play, I knew that God had a message that he wanted to share,” she said. “It’s more than a gospel stage production, it is a ministry. I believe the audience will laugh, cry and rejoice with the characters and leave the theater humming a tune from one of the production’s original songs. It’s a total experience.”
For Better for Worse? is showing one night only at the Memorial Auditorium’s Community Theater Sept. 27 at 8 p.m. Advance tickets are now on sale and are $26.50 and $36.50.
For Better or For Worse? also stars Chattanooga’s own Antonio Sanderfer, as Pierre Kirkland, whose marriage is one of the relationships put to the test.
“I knew from the moment that I read the script for For Better or For Worse? that this was something that I wanted to be a part of,” Mr. Sanderfer said. “I’m so excited that my hometown will have the chance to experience something that I believe will change their lives forever.”
Rev. Williams’ debut of For Better or For Worse? in her hometown in Georgia drew a sold-out audience and she said divine inspiration led to her decision to take the production on a tour of the southeast.
“There’s a message in For Better or For Worse? that is universal,” Rev. Williams said. “Whether you are married, seriously dating, single, or none of the above, this is a production that is a must see because it has the power to change lives.”
The Rev. Wayne Johnson, pastor of New Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Chattanooga, said he has known Rev. Williams for several years and is familiar with her production company, Purpose-Filled Productions, and its high level of excellence.
“This is such an uplifting production,” Rev. Johnson said.
