The play is the second annual John D. Yeck MainStage production, made possible by a gift of $1 million from the estate of Dayton businessman Yeck (Miami ’34).
It’s a story of personal love and loss as well as a story of larger issues including race, class and difference in the context of Caribbean post-colonialism.
The production is directed by Paul Jackson (theatre).
