University Players to Stage Award Winning Play: ‘Not About Eve’

‘Not About Eve’.  is the title of the provocative play, to be staged by the University Players, the award-winning resident theatre company of the Philip Sherlock Centre for the Creative Arts (PSCCA), beginning this Saturday, October 15. The play won the International Theatre Institute’s Actor Boy Award for Best New Play when it was first staged in Jamaica in 2006, and recently has been given prestigious public readings by the Black National Theatre in New York, and at the annual Black Theatre Festival in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The play is written by UWI, Mona graduate, Karl Williams. 
The revised play will draw on the talents of veteran Jamaican director and actress Carol Lawes as ‘Mama’ the family matriarch, while University Players stalwart Nadean Rawlins plays her stressed-out business-woman daughter ‘Katherine’. Lisa Williams, who was a part of the cast of the highly successful Jamaican movie, ‘Ghetta Life', plays the role of a member of the third generation of the family. Together the three actresses paint a vivid picture of women’s lives in contemporary middle-class Jamaica, peeling back the layers to reveal some of the dissatisfactions and disillusionments which reside below the thin surface of outward family respectability.
‘Not About Eve’ will be staged for six performances at the Philip Sherlock Centre, UWI, Mona  on Saturday, October 15 at 8 pm and Sunday, October 16 at 6 pm. It continues from Wednesday, October 19 thru Saturday, October 22 at 8 pm.
