Stay Stuck!


It's not too late to catch Nahal and the gang for Jessica Goldberg's "Stuck" at the American Memorial Park Visitor Center tonight at 7pm. Last play date will be tomorrow, June 9, Saturday same time, same venue.

Watched it last Sunday and I was impressed with the chemistry between Keisha Paez (Margaritah) and Nahal Navidar (Lula). Both of them are the delight in the play. 'Was looking forward to seeing them together up on stage.

I believe the theme of the play has sort of relevance for some who have been here in the CNMI for a long time now.

Rick Jones (Charlie) did a convincing role as a mature man hitting on Lula. Kelvin Rodeo played a role of an Argentine. Ok, he has no spanish accent whatsoever, his lines would've been funnier when delivered with a spanish accent. Lynda Rowe (Lula's mother) as usual is a spice in the play who holds back Lula from moving on.

Verdict: I enjoyed the play. Terrific script. For a play in the CNMI, this one is at par with the others for great acting, lines and simplicity. Don't let the ending horrify you on your seat.

we caught Nahal and Keisha last night (sat) what an outstanding performance!!!

according to a Kaiser survey 34% of US women become pregnant at least once before age 20. Reference:http://www.kff.org/youthhivstds/upload/U-S-Teen-Sexual-Activity-Fact-Sheet.pdf

Keisha's character was a little older than 20 however with the trauma of sexual abuse from the step father and the factory town environment we can see how STUCK she was !! Do we see this in Saipan?

Saipan teen women get pregnant during high school years or right after high school. Then, theyre stuck.

Incredibly, there are a lot of cases of sexual abuse here within a family unit based on stats gathered by the Family Task Force and the Division of Youth Services. I know one advocate of this who openly shares her plight for awareness.
