The comedic hit Caribbean play “Letter from Leonora” will be staged at the Brooklyn Music School Theater on Saturday, April 13 from 8 pm.
The play was written by the late accomplished Trinidadian Eric Roach and is being directed by Hemish Marlon Gervis of St. Lucia. It will feature an all-star cast of St. Lucian actresses who will ignite its funny plot.
Letter from Leonora is set in a village in the 1960’s. It is said to be one of the most humorous pieces ever written by Roach. The play has been staged to wide acclaim in St. Lucia, including as entertainment for the heads of government of the OECS nations at a past sitting in Castries.
Director Gervis said the staging of “Letter from Leonora” in Brooklyn serves to expose the international audience to the fine work of our talented Caribbean artists. He wants everyone to come and laugh out loud while enjoying an evening of entertainment.
Infused in this staging of cultural expression dubbed “Caribbean Night” will be an explosive session of African drumming with accompanying dancers.
Tickets cost $30 in advance and are available at JW Records on Church Avenue or online at www.eventbrite.com. The event’s HOTLINE is 1-347-692-9428.
