One chance to see “One White, One Black”

| 12/08/2008

(CNS): "One White, One Black", a play by Frank Mcfield and produced by the Cayman National Cultural Foundation (CNCF), opens for one night only on Saturday 16 August at the Harquail Studio Theatre before the cast and crew take the play to Guyana as Cayman’s theatre offering at the 10th Caribbean Festival of the Arts (CARIFESTA).

The play is directed by CNCF Artistic Director Henry Muttoo, and stars Frits McPhearson and Quincy Brown, who play two artists, one a drummer and the other a writer, that have hit rock bottom. They have both failed in their married relationships and must depend upon each other to be the mirror that reflects their past, so that they can understand their current predicament. As they interact, helping each other to explore past relationships, deep feelings are stirred. In the end, a tighter bond of friendship develops as they discover the truth about themselves.

There are only forty seats available for Saturday’s performance, which starts at 7:00 pm. Admission is free but there are only a few seats left. The play is for adults 18 years and older, and no one will be admitted with a child. After the performance, there will be having a "Talk Back" session with the audience to discuss the play.

During the 10-day CARIFESTA in Guyana, there will be three performances: 6:00 pm on 23 August at Berbice High School, and 7:00 pm on 25 and 26 August at the Theatre Guild Playhouse, Georgetown.

CARIFESTA, a festival to promote the Arts in the Caribbean Region, was first started in Guyana in 1972, and from its inception the festival sought to inspire Caribbean cultural practitioners to innovate new art forms, while providing an outlet for those that already existed. It will be held this year across Guyana 22 to 31August.
