(PRESS RELEASE) – The appetite of literature and theatre lovers promises to be satiated when the Gablewoods Mall Food Court transforms into a soul feeding space as 758 Books presents Juan Shamsul Alam’s Zookeeper.
Following a successful stage reading on November 15th, 2019, the production, directed by Mc Donald Dixon features a male cast depicting the lives of two (2) Puerto Rican brothers; played by David Mc Lennon and Christopher Duncan, who tackle the issue of homophobia. As one brother’s life is sucked away by AIDS, the play takes the audience on a riveting journey of discovery and reflection.
The production takes place on Saturday 7th December at the Gablewoods Mall Food Court from 7:00 p.m. Admission is $20.00. The seventy-five minute production will be followed by a Q & A session which would allow for open engagement with the cast and crew.
758 Books opened in 2014 with its main objective being to encourage an appreciation for literature in Saint Lucia. Dahlia Francois, Manager at 758 Books hopes that the entity will become a cultural hub which would facilitate “living literature”.
