A story of love, spontaneity, and sacrifice
Shandrea Funnye – “Seven Days”
Shandrea Funnye is a writer, director, singer, songwriter, and actress originally from Chicago Il. She has been writing since third grade, which is also where she won her first young authors contest. A Warren Central High School graduate she also attended IUPUI. A mother to two beautiful children, Funnye focused more on her family and less on the arts. Years later she auditioned for a small part in a friend’s production. When selected as the lead, she knew the opportunity was a needed push back in the right direction. Since 2017 Funnye has written and produced five original stage plays, sold out numerous shows, written and produced a short film and is currently in production for the feature film “Seven Days”, based on the stage play. Funnye is most grateful for her children - her main source of motivation and her amazing mother, who supports her in everything she does. She would also like to thank her wonderful friends and family members who have supported her in this journey; whether they purchase a ticket, share a post, offer kind words, or show up and show out at each or every production they are helping to make a dream come true.
“SEVEN DAYS” is a story of love, spontaneity, and sacrifice. It chronicles what can happen when two people who are both at new starting points in their lives crash into each other unexpectedly. This play illustrates just how much a life can change and be changed in just seven days. Seven Days” by Shandrea Funnye is a warm story of love, spontaneity, sacrifice and the notion that timing is everything.
