Dove, Stellar, GMWA and NAACP Image Award-Winning Singer DOTTIE PEOPLES signs on for new stage play “Mrs. Independent”

mrsindDottie Peoples has signed on to star in the new stage play “Mrs. Independent” along with Robin Givens, Priest Tyaire, Christopher Williams, Tony Grant and Trisha Mann-Grant.  Dottie states; “I have always loved doing stage plays, I’m a people person and with plays we do so many shows back to back across the country it really gives me the opportunity to fellowship with the cast, crew and staff and then after each show I get to meet and greet with the fans. And I love the challenge of acting, I try to connect with my character while still bringing some of my personality to the part and it’s always fun to sing some Gospel in that setting”.
The 12 city tour kicks off in Kansas City on October 3.
Priest Tyaire announced the release of his latest inspirational, musical stage play “Mrs. Independent” starring actress Robin Givens from the movie “Boomerang”;  debonair actor-singer Christopher Williams from the movie New Jack City; Stellar Award winning singer Dottie Peoples, the soulful, Grammy nominated Tony Grant of Tyler Perry’s “Love Thy Neighbor”, and, featuring the lovely and talented actress Trisha Mann-Grant. This highly anticipated production has already enjoyed a very successful spring tour in major cities and is now scheduled to take place throughout various cities this fall. The production is sure to have audiences on the edge of their seats, while also leaving them with a message of hope and encouragement.
“Mrs. Independent”, based on a true life story, takes audiences on a riveting, yet thought-provoking journey of exploring questions like – Can a woman still love her husband if she is the primary breadwinner? Will the roles reverse with her wearing the pants while he ultimately works to honor her every demand? But, what if he is a good man that’s faithful and does actually contribute to the household? Is it possible that true love, affection and Godly integrity can be restored to the marriage?
clip_image006“I am really excited about bringing “Mrs. Independent” to a number of cities this fall”, said Priest Tyaire, Playwright, Actor and Producer of the production. “The play highlights the struggle a couple experiences when the wife is the primary breadwinner, while her husband still tries to maintain his role as the head of the household. While the play reflects an important, socially relevant issue, it is delivered in an inspirational and entertaining way that captivates all audiences”.
In “Mrs. Independent”, Priest Tyaire and Robin Givens take on the leading roles.  Trey (Priest Tyaire), maintains an honest and respectable salary of $40,000 a year as a head mechanic, while his wife, Carleena (Robin Givens), climbs the corporate ladder as an attorney and advances to a six figure salary. This creates a financial imbalance in the home which leads the marriage on a downward spiral of emotional and spiritual conflicts.  Critics are saying that If you don’t see any other play, you must see “Mrs. Independent”.
Priest Tyaire is a breakthrough playwright who has produced life-changing stage plays through his inspirational productions – “The Tears of a Teenage Mother,” “Torn Between Two Fathers,” and, “The Wrong Shade of Black” – to name a few.  In fact, his show, “Mrs. Independent”, has been so successful, that it received rave reviews in leading media outlets – The Washington Post, The Baltimore Sun Times, on Fox TV, and in Eclipse Magazine.
In addition, Priest’s personal struggle on his journey of success is highly compelling.  It was his mother’s battle with cancer which initially led him to becoming a playwright back in 2007. Moreover, he was faced with fighting to keep his dream alive after the painful experience of losing her just two weeks before she was able to see his first play that was dedicated to her life. And finally, the destructive relationship he personally endured with someone who treated him less than a man because of his economic challenges and educational status (at that time) which pushed him to go back to school to pursue his career goals, and, to ultimately write his highly acclaimed play “Mrs. Independent”.
