About The Show


SOULS OF TIME, a musical drama, a Matthews Educational Consultant production, written and composed by Mobilians, Japonica Brown and Yvonne Matthews, is a story that follows a young girl named Jade, residing in Mobile, Alabama in 2020 before the Pandemic. Living with her emotionally abusive mother and younger brother in the Down the Bay community, Jade struggles with self-acceptance and self-love.

Through an unexpected and unexplained turn of events, she is transported to 1963, living in the body of Mary-Ann Thomas, a 15-year-old girl who lived in the same house 57 years earlier. She experiences firsthand the challenges of Black people in Mobile County during the height of segregation, subsequently, learning about herself, her culture, the history of Mobile County and Alabama, and her inner-generational resilience.

The talented actors, singers, and dancers hail from the Gulf Coast, and they bring to life this fictional story that is wrapped around history.

SOULS OF TIME is made possible by the Mobile County Commission and Commissioner Merceria Ludgood.
