The Eintou Springer play ‘Shades of I-She: Every Woman’s Story’ will take place at the Big Black Box in Woodbrook, from May 27th- 29th, with a Gala on May 27th. It will once again put the focus on domestic violence, incest and other social traumas. The aim of the production is to generate useful discussion and solutions through culture and the arts, and to raise funds for the community outreach programmes of ICAN.
The play was originally performed between 1995 – 2002 throughout secondary schools and communities in Trinidad and Tobago, as well as across the Caribbean and internationally. It won a Cacique award for Best Original Music under Musical Director Ewart Serrant.
In 2016, the play will feature veteran actress Eunice Alleyne, Caribbean songstress Mavis John and the playwright herself, Eintou Springer. Serrant will return as Musical Director for this run of the play, ably complimented by flautist Muhammad Muwakil, thirteen year old pannist and guitarist Kayode Charles and Master Drummer Xavier Phillip. Newcomers Khailah Bernard, Kiah Mulrain and Shanya Springer join the cast. Dara E. Healy, ICAN founder, is the choreographer for the piece and will also be on stage as a dancer and actress.
Tickets are available from the Big Black Box, Cher Mere Day Spa outlets at Cipriani Boulevard, Long Circular Mall and Trinicity Mall and from the cast, board and members of ICAN.
