Jamaican drama offers ideal way to pass rainy evening

| 27/10/2011

(CNS): Critics say that if you’re going to see any Jamaican play in your lifetime, make sure one of them is Trevor Rhone’s “2 Can Play” and the Cayman National Cultural Foundation  is making it easy for locals to do just that this coming weekend. The play, directed by Henry Muttoo and starring Michael McLaughlin and Marcia Muttoo, tells the story of Jim and Gloria, who are virtual prisoners in their own home in a war torn section of 1970’s Kingston.  In a review of the play, filmmaker and occasional actress, Judy Singh, says the commentary on social class, relationships and gender equality is as relevant today as it was 30 years ago and recommends it as an ideal way to pass a rainy evening.

The play continues its run this weekend at the Harquail Theatre from Thurs ‐ Sat at 8pm and on Sunday at 6pm. Tickets available at all Foster’s, Funky Tangs and Harquail Theatre or call 949‐5477.
