HOUSTON, Feb. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Who/What: The Ensemble Theatre tackles the issue of adult children caring for their aging parent in Broke-ology, by Nathan Louis Jackson and directed by Ensemble Theatre Artistic Director Eileen J. Morris.
In accordance with Broke-ology – the science of being broke - the King family has learned to balance sacrifice and let love keep them together. Set in a beleaguered Kansas City neighborhood, two grown brothers try to balance the challenges of their own lives with their desire to care for their ailing father. Even as they remember simpler times, tension builds between the brothers as their conflicting interests churn into a surprising outcome. Broke-ology is a warm and wrenching play about a loving African-American family facing its troubles with humor, resiliency, and grace.
Featured cast members include: Autumn Knight, Joseph "Joe P" Palmore, L.D. Green, Broderick "Brod J" Jones.
This performance is recommended for mature audiences due to adult language and profanity.

The Ensemble Theatre was founded in 1976 by the late George Hawkins to preserve African American artistic expression and to enlighten, entertain, and enrich a diverse community. Thirty-six years later, the theatre has evolved from a touring company operating from the trunk of Mr. Hawkins' car to being one of Houston's finest historical cultural institutions. The Ensemble is one of a few professional theatres in the region dedicated to the production of works portraying the African American experience. The oldest and largest professional African American theatre in the Southwest, it holds the distinction of being one of the nation's largest African American theatres owning and operating its facility and producing in-house. Board President Emeritus Audrey Lawson led the capital campaign for The Ensemble's $4.5 million building renovations that concluded in 1997. The Ensemble Theatre has fulfilled and surpassed the vision of its founder and continues to expand and create innovative programs to bring African American theatre to myriad audiences.
