OXFORDPROSPECT – Moon on a Rainbow Shawl by Errol John at the Oxford Playhouse.

See on Scoop.itOxford Today

Talawa Theatre Company has given us a new production of this unusual play, written in 1957, and set in Trinidad. The play has a (virtually) all-black cast speaking in West Indian dialect. With sensitivity, comedy, and compassion, it tells the story of the hopes and aspirations of a family in this newly-independent Commonwealth country.

Nicholas Newman‘s insight:

This is an unusual, thought-provoking play that teaches us a lot about a Commonwealth country that few of us ever visit, although it played an important part in our history, particularly in World War 2. The story is full of warmth and humanity and this production is of a very high standard.
