Created by Velvet Wells (Velvet Duke Productions)
dJerald the Djinn is the definition of people-pleaser — working around the clock to grant wishes to make others happy. Unfortunately, an impending deadline for a million-wish contract threatens his chance at retiring. Help is only a wish away.
Through humorous songs and storytelling, Djinn Joint explores Velvet’s inner conflict between people-pleasing and erasing the “magical Black man” trope.
Djinn Joint is an all ages, audience interactive adventure in the world of genies, developed and starring Velvet Wells.
