There is an appointed time for them to meet. Race. God. Growing up biracial is hard for David, being the son of an overbearing black mother and a passive white father. They've pulled him from an all-black world into an all-white one. But someone is there also. There is an appointed time for them to meet. Race. God.

Emily. Years pass. Time shifts. When they do meet, it is a meeting like no other. The rapture they feel for one another surpasses the drudgedness of their station.

She leaves someone in her stead, to continue with him where she left off. Someone who cares just as much as she had. Someone who loved him from the beginning, just as she had. God.

It will engage anyone involved in or in love with theatre – practitioners, critics, customers, administrators, agents, teachers, students” – Irish Theatre “An excellent exposé of the trials and tribulations, joys and insecurities of a life on the stage.” – British Theatre Guide “Plenty of tips here both on actor craftsmanship and on how the industry works... the real strength of O’Kane’s book is its breadth” – The Stage "This is a book about the precious dedication that makes this profession ancient and new.
