On Boxing Day, when many people are winding down from Christmas activities, Franklin Miles hopes they will use some of that downtime and tune in to 'Money Move'.
Miles, a Jamaican show promoter based in Harrow, London, makes his virtual debut with the popular roots play which will be streamed online by his company, Sunshine Horizon Promotions.
"You can sit down in your house with any amount of people and watch it. It's a good family play, the kids can watch it as well. There's no age restriction," said Miles, known as Shinehead in British entertainment circles.
Miles is best known for staging live concerts featuring reggae and dancehall acts like Freddie McGregor, U Roy, Josey Wales and Dexta Daps. Last year, he ventured into different waters with '56 East Avenue', a play starring Oliver Samuels, Audrey Reid and Volier Johnson.
That comedy's success in Harrow encouraged him to take another crack at theatre with 'Money Move', which had a successful 35-show run in Jamaica. The comedy was scheduled for one show in Harrow but had to be cancelled because of the coronavirus.
'Money Move' stars Garfield "Bad Boy Trevor" Reid, who also wrote and directed it.
A former athlete at St Elizabeth Technical High School, Miles is the younger brother of Cliff Bramwell who once managed Dennis Brown. He has lived in the United Kingdom for the past 28 years, developing a reputation for providing entertainment to the country's Caribbean community.
