-Cecelia “Ce Ce” Antoinette and Maya Loren Jackson, both actors in the stage play “Jar the Floor” currently showing at the Arkansas Repertory Theatre.  The stage play is a heartfelt comedy that proves blood is thicker than water and the ghosts of the past should not rob us of the moments we have together in the here and now.  Synopsis:  A quartet of black women spanning four generations, plus the white woman friend of the youngest, come together to celebrate the matriarch’s ninetieth birthday.  Tempers flare and ugly secrets are revealed in this furiously fractured family portrait. In the midst of the turmoil, rollicking humor bites its way through the cycles of guilt and blame passed onto from mothers to daughters.
