The Gap Theatre creatively highlighted some writers who have all significantly shaped the cultural landscape of the island.
The production entitled ‘Alleluia Porkchops’, is a combination of the works of Kamau Brathwaite, John Wickham, Austin ‘Tom’ Clarke and Timothy Callender.
The mixture of excellent lighting, rhythmic choreography, a talented cast and intriguing storylines ensured that the final night of the three-week production was a resounding success.
A talented cast including veterans Alison Sealy-Smith, Tony Thompson and Jack Lewis literally took their theatrical skills to new heights as they delivered their lines while climbing the rafters of The Cove in St. Lawrence Gap and making every available space their stage.
Directed by Amanda Cumberbatch, the play chronicled the intricacies of life in Barbados in years gone by including the love of cricket, migration to England and even the declaration that “A pork chop is held in high regard in Barbados.”
Actor Levi King, member of the musical trio Azman, led the cast in a rendition of their catchy NIFCA award-winning selection, Bajan and Proud which brought the night’s production to an end.
