Playwright directs play on the rape of women
Playwright-director Ronald John has written a play about a topical global issue, the rape of women.
Now John is looking for a producer to finance the staging of the play at different venues across T&T.
The play is called Miracle, and John said the plot revolves around Joanna Samlalsingh, a young woman who was kidnapped for ransom by two men and is brutally raped during her ordeal. How she survives this dehumanising experience is the theme of the play. John is an associate of the Playwrights Workshop, a forum for the development of new plays, held on a monthly basis at the Trinidad Theatre Workshop (TTW) in Belmont.
John has written several notable plays including The Golden Masquerade, co-written with Davlin Thomas and staged at Carifesta 2004 in Suriname. In 2009, his romantic drama Dance Me Lover was staged at the NAPA in 2012. TTW played host to his most recent works, 2010’s A Pleasant Sunday and last year’s The Silly People.
• John can be contacted by phone on 737-8326 or via e-mail [email protected].
