About this project

Written and produced by Natalie Simone, Only God Can Judge Me is a stage play featuring a group of people that are facing crossroads, and have to make life changing decisions.

The play is fast paced, unsettling at times, and interjected with comedic moments as you navigate with the characters through their battles and triumphs.

About the Play:

A group of people are facing crossroads in their lives. Jesse is a closeted member of a sorority who has kept her sexuality a secret for years. She is forced to re-think this stance because of the actions of her closest sorority sister. Erica is in a relationship with a married man who she believes is on the verge of divorcing his wife and marrying her. Michelle is a married mother who is having an affair with a female co-worker. Rounding out the cast is Monica, who is the typical Atlanta party girl who loves men, but more so, men with money. She has a calculated outlook on life where material posessions are the only thing that matters in her world.

This project is groundbreaking and unique, as it crosses all boundaries and divides. The play has a simple theme of self-acceptance. It successfully illustrates the many ways people to achieve this, as they navigate through life. The characters come from different segments of the population and are quite different in their life experiences; however, there is a central unifying need to be accepted by others, themselves and ultimately by God. The play presents issues of sexual confusion, sexual identity acceptance, economic survival, infidelity, and addiction. It leaves the audience questioning their own belief systems and how they respond to others who operate outside what is normally accepted by society. Everyone will be able to relate to the characters portrayed in this play.

The introductory performances will be held during “The Atlanta Pride” celebration, October 7-9, 2011. Though the performances will target all segments of society, it is  important to use this opportunity to kick-off our production at a festival that celebrates a population that has one of the highest rates of suicide and bullying. We think this play will pay homage to the victims and the people whose lives have been most affected.

Please support us in our efforts in this production.  We do not have the resources to undertake this great project alone, and we hope you understand that the success of this event will be credited largely to you, our backers. The money we raise will go towards: event space procurement, design props and advertising. It will also go to the actors, stage directors and the technical crew who make it all possible. 

Ten percent of our proceeds will be donated to Project Open Hand and the Nellie Prather Foudation.  We need your help to make these performances a success.  

Our mission is to change the world many hearts at a time. Help us as we do our part to make "our world a better place." It may sound cheesy, but all it takes is a few hearts to change a few others and then a few others...

We need your help! We need your support! No donation is too small. All will be appreciated.
