Dr Frank’s play to feature in Bahamas festival

| 06/10/2009

(CNS): The play written by former minister Dr Frank McField, One White One Black, will form part of the line up at the first annual Shakespeare in Paradise International Theatre Festival in the Bahamas this month. Produced by the Cayman National Cultural Foundation (CNCF), directed and designed by Henry Muttoo, the play stars Fritz McPherson and Michael McLaughlin. This is not the play’s first performance off the islands as CNCF took One White One Black to Carifesta X in Guyana last year where it was a box office and critical success.

In his play, Frank McField explores relationships through the interaction of two down and out artists who have failed in their marriages and dreams of success. Through raw confrontation and an imaginative journey of role-playing, including playing each other’s wives, the two men rediscover themselves and emerge with a better understanding of life, love and friendship.

Following the performances in the Bahamas, One White One Black will be staged in Cayman at the Harquail Theatre beginning October 24. The play is CNCF’s 25th Anniversary Production. The anniversary will be celebrated beginning on October 23 with a special anniversary staging of the Annual National Arts and Culture Awards and continues with six performance of One White One Black.

The Shakespeare in Paradise festival takes place October 5 – 12 in historic New Providence. One White One Black has three performancesduring the festival.

    Good promotional bit about Frank’s ONEWHITEONEBLACK and the CNCF’s production at the Bahama’s SHAKESPEAREINPARADISE theatre festival – the first of it’s kind?.
    Have you published a review of the festival? I ask because pre-production promotion is important but it is validated only if there is some review and confirmation that the event actually happened.

    Having said that, your CNS is an outstanding local and CARIBBEAN newspaper. thanks.
