COLLECTION OF EINTOU SPRINGER'S PLAYS IN STORES SOON
A full collection the plays of Eintou Springer's play will published in the near future.
Her plays have all evolved from work within the community – ‘Baby Doll' as a response to the need for new initiatives in behaviour modification in schools; ‘Gens D'Arime' from work with the First Nation community here at home in Trinidad and Tobago, ‘Canboulay' from her involvement with regional Carnivals throughout the country, ‘Anansi and the Poinsetta Tree' as a result of her love for and involvement with parang.
Some of the play were first stories; in the family for generations, or created by Eintou in the traditional mould. The plays will therefore be suitable for primary and secondary schools as well as adults.
Then there is the very special ‘Harmony in Diversity', written for the Trinidad and Tobago presentation Carifesta in St. Kitts/Nevis, a complete history of Trinidad and Tobago through original and indigenous music, dance, song and traditional carnival and folk characters.
‘Shades of I-She', performed throughout the Caribbean and internationally is another significant offering, telling the story of the Caribbean woman who emerges triumphant, despite being forced to face incest, abuse, HIV AIDS and a number of other challenges.
When this collection hits books stores, Eintou will hold the distinction of being one of only two or three women in the Caribbean to have such a collection.
Following is a full list of Eintou's original plays:
As always, we will keep you posted!
