KINGSTON, 1 Jun 2013.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Backstory is proud to announce their 2013 production, Taboo. This smart, funny, sexy show features Rodney Campbell, Lisa Williams (Ghett’a Life), Keiran King and two-time beauty queen Yendi Phillipps in her debut stage performance. With a fresh, whip-sharp script by Keiran King (Last Call, Mr & Mrs Blacke), crafted for the stage by veteran director Eugene Williams (Ruined), Taboo is the show you know you shouldn’t see, and won’t forget.
“We have a tremendous cast that each brings a unique energy to the set,” says playwright Keiran King. “Rodney’s playful machismo, Lisa’s sweet charm and Yendi’s bouncy optimism make it such a joy to be at rehearsal. It is a humbling and challenging experience working with such talented performers under Eugene’s direction. Everything he says reveals years of experience.”
In this adults-only drama, two young Jamaican couples try to navigate the mixed-up world of sex and relationships. Taboo opens July 12 at the Sherlock. To learn more or get tickets, visit backstory.com.jm or call 453-7119.
