“ECSTASY” Back For One Night Only

first_img Share Share Tweet Dr. Alwin Bully, Artistic Director of the Caribbean Theatre Network.Caribbean Theatre Network brings back to the Dominican public for one night only David Heron’s controversial play ECSTASY. This play which was performed to enthusiastic houses for three nights in December will be on stage at the Arawak House of Culture at 8pm on Sunday January 29, 2012. Written for mature audiences by acclaimed Jamaican playwright, David Heron, ECSTASY explores the sensitive issues of class, colour and sex as people try to find their place in a Caribbean society whose value systems are often based on family background, home address, workplace and what car they drive.The play makes those points so excitingly clear that it has audiences offering advice to the characters as it clashes the vibrant and popular Dancehall ghetto culture against the power and prejudices of Jamaica’s uptown sector with its set ways, unwritten rules and clear behavioural expectations. So when Jewel Brown, played by Marja “Lady Star”Jeffers, a sexy and ambitious Dance Hall Queen from the under-belly of one of Kingston’s meanest ghettos meets Richard Foster, played by Daryl Bobb, an over-protected rich boy in search of himself, the situation explodes taking the audience with it and, making ECSTASY one of the most entertaining and thought-provoking plays to hit the Dominican theatre scene in many years.This Dominican production also stars top ranking Radio personality and Entertainment Manager Miguel Labadie, Courts dynamic Marketing Manager Letricia Cadette, and thrilling new-comers Justina Worrell and Leyona John.Stage Management is by Gloria Augustus and Curtis Clarendon while set design is by Alwin Bully, Props by Sonia Riviere and Costume coordination by Claudia Henderson. Tickets are available at Bull’s Eye Pharmacy and Depex Color Lab.Press ReleaseCaribbean Theatre Network Sharing is caring!center_img 16 Views   no discussions LocalNews “ECSTASY” Back For One Night Only by: – January 25, 2012 Sharelast_img read more
