Enspired by Ernie Barnes portrait entitled, Sugar Shack, DIAMOND tells the story of QUEENIE, the proprietor of Diamond Lils,
a low-down, git-down hoochie flowing nightclub.
One Good Friday evenin' Ms. Queenie is approached by her nervous dealer reporting trouble in the back room.
Summoned to scene with eyebrow raised, who intends to rectify the situation, becomes captivated by King, a nomad drifter who oblivious to the boss and the rules of the house, controls the back room, with his charm, poise and so it seems, endless streak of luck.
Although Ms Queenie has been around and has seen them come and go, King is different. During the course of the night against her innate belief, Ms Queenie's heart takes over and changes the rules. With each hand of the card game played, the story moves forward to unfold the rhythm and the force of Queenie's desire for King.
Not a simple love story.
Diamond Lils is the place where, a card game transcends game into fantasy and real life.
