Towne Street Theatre (TST) Virtual Salon presents a Literary Series performance reading of Sleep Well My Lady, a mystery by Kwei Quartey. The story is about private investigator Emma Djan, who investigates the death of the Ghanaian fashion icon and social media celebrity, Lady Araba. To solve the murder, Emma must not only go on an undercover mission that dredges up trauma from her past, but also navigate a long list of suspects with strong motives. Emma quickly discovers that they are all willing to lie for each other—and that one may still be willing to kill. Betrayal, Lust and Deception are among the many reasons...
