Description

‘ASYLUM’ & ‘JURY OF PEERS’; A Reading of Two Short Plays at TTW

Rhesa Samuel’s ‘ASYLUM’ and Althea Milliband’s ‘JURY OF PEERS’, will be the two plays featured at the April 2018 instalment of Playwrights Workshop Trinbago’s (PWT) Monthly Readers Theatre Series. The readings, which occur on the first Wednesday of every month, will take place on Wednesday 4th April, 7PM, at the Trinidad Theatre Workshop, #6 Newbold Street, St Clair.

Known for being an uncanny and eccentric artist, Rhesa has been involved in Theatre and Film as an aspiring producer, writer, director, teacher and actress since 2005. She graduated from UWI with First Class Honours in Theatre Arts (2017) and a BSc in Biology & Environmental Science (2012).

She is currently a teacher at the Trinidad Theatre Workshop, and was last seen on stage as 'Betty' in Raymond Choo Kong Productions’ ‘MARK BUSS ON THE WATER TAXI’. Her play, ‘ASYLUM’, is about a young man with mental disorders who reflects on his childhood. It was first developed while she was a playwriting student in the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine (UWI), and was initially read at the Monthly Readers in May of 2017 as part of PWT’s commitment to the reading of the UWI Playwriting students’ scripts.

Althea Milliband, a self-proclaimed revolutionary and aspiring playwright, says she was compelled to write ‘JURY OF PEERS’ after seeing a video of a crab wielding a knife in a kitchen sink. ‘JURY OF PEERS’ follows this incident and explores the legal ramifications of a crab intentionally/accidentally killing a human. Is it self-defence, murder, manslaughter or suicide?

The Playwrights Workshop Trinbago is inviting actors, playwrights, directors, producers, and the general public to the reading to provide the playwrights with feedback, to further develop their scripts.

The event will be held on Wednesday 4th April 2018, 7PM at the Trinidad Theatre Workshop, 6 Newbold Street, St Clair. Admission is FREE but Space Is Limited. RSVP is Required.
