`Days Like Dese’, a 30-minute sitcom was launched yesterday morning in the boardroom of the Institute of Private Enterprise Development (IPED), according to a press release from GEMS Theatre Productions.
The new sitcom is presented by GEMS Theatre Productions in collaboration with IPED’s support for the Creative Industries.
‘Days Like Dese’ is a 30-minute sitcom that delves into the daily lives of a diverse ‘socially responsible’ middle class Guyanese family, the Rupauls. The release said that the sitcom inspects and highlights the intricacies of family and community interactions through “blurred racial and social lens”.
The sitcom through its intentionally diverse and mixed cast intends to remind of “how connected we really are as Guyanese”, the release said. It added that the Rupaul family exists not only in a racial blender but a social and generational one; as we get to see how the youth and the older folks try and sometimes struggle to bridge the generational and social gaps.
