New Play Coming From Silk Cotton Theatre Company Presents
In collaboration with the Montserrat Arts Council, the theatre group will present “My Birthright” on Saturday 28th October, 2017.
The Silk Cotton Theatre Company was formed in 2016 and is made up of individualsÂ interested in all aspects of theatre including acting, producing, costuming and lighting &Â sound engineering.
According to the MAC, last yearâ€™s production â€œOne Night, 3 Playsâ€ was well received and featured the Company inÂ two consecutive nights of drama, each night inclusive of three plays. Following last yearâ€™sÂ successful debut, this yearâ€™s production is eagerly anticipated.
â€œMy Birthrightâ€ seeks to highlight sibling rivalry and the age old issue of taking care of ourÂ elderly. After abandoning her family and the life she knew, Mary returns home after tenÂ years upon pending death of her mother. Mary has only one thing on her mindâ€¦claimingÂ her birthright.”
This yearâ€™s production takes place on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th October, 2017. In trueÂ Arts Council fashion, the opening night will be Gala style while the following night will be aÂ regular viewing of the play. To reserve Gala tickets, patrons can visit the Arts Council officeÂ upstairs the Little Bay Public Market or call 491-8555 or 8556.
