Playwright Betty Pinckney
For years, Betty had dreams of being on stage. The dreams were vivid. However, she never knew what she was doing on stage. As a child, she along with her sister Linda would pretend they had tea parties and act out stories. Acting was something she always wanted to do, but never in a million years she thought she'd be providing scripts for actors to develop, grow, and shine on stage.
 Betty has been writing, acting, and producing  Inspirational plays since 2007.  Her humble beginnings started when she was asked by a dear friend to write a Christmas skit for the youth at her home church. Reluctanty, Betty agreed to write the skit. The skit was a success and the youth was asking to be in more productions. That was the beginning of Betty discovering that she had a gift from God. God began to give her visions, stories, and songs that made a great impact in the lives of those who were involved in the skits as well as those who came to see it. Her skits began to escalate into full length plays and now, books, and movies. Betty has completed the book and screenplay that was adapted from her latest play, "If Walls Could Talk, They Would Tell Secrets." Betty was featured in "The Philadelphia Tribune" in 2014 for her play, "The Resurrected Life" for giving all of the proceeds to her local church to help support the expansion and endowment of the church. Betty knows the importance of her gift and use it as a witnessing tool to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. Her favorite saying is a saying that she heard Gloria Copeland say while watching the Believers Voice of Victory program."God take my life and do something with it." God has done exactly that. Betty has done skits and plays in halls, churches, and theaters. She is a Native of Philadelphia. The wife to Pastor Derrick Pinckney Sr. and mother of two children, Derrick Pinckney Jr, and Kayla Pinckney. .
 Betty plans on giving back to the community by partnering with others to expand the work and assignment that has been given to her. Betty believes that the misson of drama ministry is to present the message of God's love, grace, forgiveness, judgment, and salvation through dramatic presentations that will entertain, educate, uplift, restore, revive, minister, and encourage the audience and everyone involved to live for christ.
Her most recent play is a sequel to her latest play. "If Walls Could Talk, They Would Tell Secrets 2 ." The play will be performed live on stage in 2019.
