Jamaican Oliver Samuels has come out with a new comedy, Embassy Saga, which he promises will be “one of the best productions… ever” and he’s bringing it to Guyana next weekend.
“Who among us is without an embassy saga or embassy drama?” Oliver asks. Now 65, Oliver, well known for his Oliver at Large comedy routines, has defied the odds by still reigning as the King of Comedy. What’s even more interesting is that his last production, Who a Di Don, was a most-watched play for 2012 and insiders predict that Embassy Saga will be even bigger.
Embassy Saga has already had two tours to the USA, two tours to Canada and a double billing 16 months after it first opened. Embassy Saga delivers a compelling story of family life in Jamaica, but has more punch lines and moments of belly-cramping laughter. It mixes suspense, drama and comedy. The audience will feel at times that they are watching a reality show, but nothing will prepare them for the dramatic end. Embassy Saga is on at Thirst Park next Saturday, June 29 and the MSC Ground, Linden on Sunday, June 30.
Tickets cost $2,500 for regular seats and $6,000 for the VIP section at Thirst Park on Saturday and $2,500 and $5,000 for regular and VIP at MSC Ground on Sunday.
