Bailout - this one going and fog up the place!
Theatre begins for 2013 in Port-of-Spain with the world premiere of the blockbuster and hilarious, bacchanal-filled Bailout.
Bailout is written by Ricardo Samuel who last year brought you the roaringly funny Eat Ah Food.”
Bailout begins the theatre season and comes from the acclaimed producers of the mega hits Mary Could Dance, De Biggest Maco, Men Are Dogs, Love Thy Neighbour and of course Eat Ah Food which had theatre-goers in fun-filled uproar in 2012.
Producer RS and RR Productions is acclaimed by many patrons as the most prestigious of all theatre companies.
Questions that arise in Bailout include what happens in big financial establishments? How are decisions made in the board room? At the board room table…Under it?...Or on top of it? The wheeling and dealing that affects people’s money.
Political contributions and favours in return. And of course, illicit sexual relationships! Is anybody minding the store? Is anybody actually watching people’s investments?
The bacchanal plays out in one of the largest insurance firms and associated companies in T&T.
Find out about the hilarious activities of the chairman Mr Dudley, his right-hand man Mr Mottley, their women and, of course, a well-paid spiritual adviser by the name of Mother Bernice. Mix in a very inquisitive investigator by the name of Fifi and the sexy corporate secretary who has million-dollar cheques in her draws.
The bacchanal never stops and, of course, Bailout is absolutely a story of fiction, this kind of unfolding corruption and comess could never be based on anything true…or could it?
Bailout is directed by the award-winning Richard Ragoobarsingh and features a stellar cast which includes award-winning actors Debra Boucaud Mason, Glenn Davis, Richard Ragoobarsingh, Clifford Learmond, Leslie Ann Lavine, Ria Ali, Roger Dickie and Derek Kistow.
