Archbishop and PM come to town
The Archbishop and the Prime Minister, by Ralph Maraj, will have its premiere run in Port-of-Spain at the Central Bank Auditorium, October 11-13. The play was scheduled to open at Napa, South, next month but will return to its home base later in the year.
The work has been described as a “hard-hitting and hilarious political satire that takes no partisan political sides but explores the political culture of Trinidad and Tobago”.
In the play the country’s archbishop is moved by genuine concern for his society and steps out of his crease to speak with conviction on national issues. He runs afoul of the prime minister who must take steps to stop the archbishop whose sermons and statements resonate with a wide cross-section of the society, deepening the discontent with the way the country is being governed.
The conflict between these two leaders is at the heart of the drama and it is all happening with a general election approaching.
Ralph Maraj plays the prime minister and Hubert Ramlal is the archbishop. Tickets at $150 will soon be on sale at Nigel R Khan in West Mall, Ellerslie Plaza, Long Circular Mall, Trincity, Price Plaza, and Grand Bazaar and Vanity Fair in Valpark, and can be booked by calling 657-1086.
