Earl Lovelace’s Jestina’s Calypso on stage

On Saturday 17 April, Griot Productions will present the gala opening of Earl Lovelace‘s Jestina’s Calypso. This is the first of the company’s three productions for this year. According to Griot Productions:
Jestina’s Calypso promises to be serious, funny, sad and tragic. The characters are real people that we can find in our lives here in Trinidad and even within ourselves. Jestina’s situation is one that promises to resonate with each and every one of us, however different we may be.”
The show runs for two nights, Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th April, at the Gordon Street Auditorium at the University of the West Indies, St Augustine. The cast includes Louanna Martin, Isoke Edwards-Najeeullah, Tracey Lucas, Mandisa Granderson, Nikolai Salcedo, Marvin Dowridge and Darien Gibson. The production is directed by Elisha Bartels.
Tickets are now on sale and cost $150 for Saturday (gala night) and $100 for Sunday night.
