To Accept, Dial 5 Now.
In this eavesdropping snippet of a jailhouse call, Silas gages the status of his relationship with his girlfriend Jackie. To Accept, Dial 5 Now (written by M.J. Fievre and directed by Gladys Ramirez) is a story about violence, jealousy and control, the choices we make, and the limits of love.
Actors include Chasity Hart as “Jackie” (left), Jovon SingaBoy Jacobs as “Silas” (top right), and Laura Pons as “Recording” (bottom right).
“This cast is wonderfully capable of being brutally honest and vulnerable while embodying the complex characters M.J. has created,” says Gladys Ramirez in an interview on the Knight Arts website.
