Local playwright takes over Playhouse Square

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - It started with a script six months ago, and now it's hitting the stage.

SOULmate was written and produced by Cleveland native "Philly" Weeden.

The former NFL Baltimore Raven is now a personal trainer by day and a playwright by night.

Weeden sat down with Tia Ewing and Brian Duffy to discuss how he's funding the play out of his own pocket.

Taral Hicks is the star of SOULmate, the film actress says she read the script and was immediately onboard.

SOULmate? A True Love Story Stage Play is about a young quirky boy who tries everything to get the most popular girl in school  to notice him then he realizes, all he has to do is be himself.

There is one showing. It's Saturday, Nov 14 at 8:00 p.m.
