The biography is living in seminars, classroom Q & A's, storytelling and various adaptions to invitations.
Sharon Jasprizza has written a series of short and full plays capturing critical moments in Terrance’s life. These plays are the supporting basis for the biography she has been working on since December 25, 2011. The biography is living in plays, film, photographs, footage, great dialogue and the inspiring work Terrance does to bring transformational change to our world.
The biography traces the life of a 45 year old African-American man from Florida, who relocates to New York. The story tells the tale of a man who suffered numerous horrors of life. Many were self-inflicted, but through a miraculous journey guided by angels and faith, he has turned his life around since 2009, to win national and international awards, commendations, and in March 2014 receiving the New York Student of the Year Award in Albany.
The showcase “A Late Sunday Afternoon with Terrance" on May 18, 2014, featured three of these plays read as table reads, and a Q & A with Terrance, the audience, and associated others.
Another showcase with the addition of a new play
"I'm not that Guy" captured the essence of Terrance's journey at the DOE Harlem 1 theater on, Father's Day, Sunday 15 June, 2014. The Q & A with the audience, Terrance, Sharon and the cast highlighted the need for further story telling to illustrate the power within us to change lives. Ray DeForest and Tiffany Hargett surprised our audience with heartfelt songs to match the essence captured that afternoon.
"Your Story Matters" performance was held on Sunday, 30 November, 2014 at QED Astoria Theatre in New York.
