The not-for-profit NGO Brown Cotton Outreach (BCO) is partnering with the historic Little Carib Theatre in Woodbrook and WACK 90.1 FM TV to bring you a Carnival theatre show like no other.
An exposé of BCO’s Camps Carnival Theatre Technique, “The Revenge of King Jab Jab” hits the Little Carib stage on February 6 and 7.
King Jab Jab and his cohorts from the Land of Mamaguy “play mas” with the Shakespearean tradition as they replace democracy with dictatorship by devising the most dastardly and ridiculous plans to create a new and improved “Hell-On-Earth.”
A Carnival Theatre social satire, “The Revenge of King Jab Jab” uses traditional carnival characters, lots of vintage calypso and Shakespearean quotes to deliver its hilarious message of the dangers of “fake news” and the rise of “populism” in politics the world over.
Limited seating due to the pandemic means that only 80 people per show for three performances will be able to enjoy “The Revenge of King Jab Jab” at the Little Carib Theatre.
For those not lucky enough to get a ticket, and for those living abroad, WACK 90.1 FM will stream the entire Sunday 7, 3 pm matinee performance “live” on Facebook and YouTube.
“The Revenge of King Jab Jab” is directed by theatre legend and national icon Ellen O’Malley Camps (Helen Camps). It is written by BCO’s resident playwright Wayne Lee-Sing and produced by Louris Martin Lee-Sing, co-founder at BCO.
Proceeds from the show will be used to aid the Little Carib Theatre with its COVID recovery programme, having had to close for nearly one full year, and to further future BCO projects such as the continuation of the BCO/MSP (Maximum Security Prison) Film and Theatre Programme, documentary film projects and furthering access to our dynamic educational and outreach approach, the Camps Carnival Theatre Technique.
