212 Vernon Place House with blinds.jpg

212 Vernon Place is a new TV show written by playwright Ceola J.  based on three of her stage play productions; the If These Walls Could Talk Trilogy.  The story revolves around Mother Mabel Blackstone, a fiesty Bible school teacher at Truth Not Tradition Fellowship Church, and her family and friends! This group will have you crying, laughing until your belly hurts, and shouting hallelujah all at the same time! The doorbell and telephone are always ringing at Mother Mabel's, and you never know who will stop by! Suffice it to say, the walls at 212 Vernon Place, are talking and they have a lot to say.

Don't be surprised when you come to 212 Vernon Place. Mother Mabel always has a warm cup of tea and a slice of banana nut bread on the table! Her Bible is within reach, and she is always ready with a prayer.
