New graduates of the National School of Theatre, Arts and Drama are expected to entertain patrons next Saturday, when they perform in Michael James’s Skin Teeth Nah Laugh, a comedy.
According to a press release, the play is being staged at a critical time in the country’s social metamorphosis into a more desired humane posture, as regards treatment of the elderly and disadvantaged.
“The play is essentially a comedy that satirizes the said situation in an imagined dysfunctional family, dependent upon remittances from the USA. They detest their duties, to care for their great uncle recovering from a stroke,” the release revealed. While they “skin their teeth” and laugh with him out of sheer convenience, he plans a hilarious and most ludicrous revenge for the bad treatment.
“Patrons, especially Guyanese in the remittance business, should hold on to their ribs as this bold comedy unfolds,” the release predicts.
The play is being performed as part of a package of entertainment and celebrations for Guyana’s 48th Republic Anniversary.
Starting time is 8 pm at the National Cultural Centre and tickets cost $2000.
The actors and actresses who will be show casing their talents are; Tristana Roberts, Donna Anne Shivon Sargeant, Kevin Kellman, Akeisha Gaul, Fredrick Minty and Godfrey Naughton Henry. Henry also directs the play.
