Family relations are always ripe with drama, from ecstatic joy to heartbreak. And Jamaican families prove no different in the popular Basil Dawkins' production, Where is my Father. The hit Jamaican domestic drama will premiere in South Florida on Mother's Day, May 13, at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts at 7 p.m.
Set in inner city Kingston, Where is my Father tells the story of Evadney, a brilliant and promising teenager whose life turns upside down when a horrific sexual assault leaves her pregnant. Resisting pressures from her mother and her community to move on, Evadney refuses to have her children grow up without knowing the identity of the its father and goes on a relentless mission to seek the truth for her child.
An insightful look into the darker side of Jamaican families and the often tortured interdependence of people across race and class, Where is my Father marks Dawkins' most moving story yet. And despite the pain and grief, the play always keeps the signature Jamaican humor.
Where is my Father stars talented newcomers Allison McLean and Lisa Williams, plus Jamaican theater stalwarts Jean-Paul Menou, Rodney Campbell and Nadean Rawlins, who also won a 2011 Actor Boy Award for her performance in the play.
The new play marks the return of award winning producer and playwright, Basil Dawkins, to South Florida. The winner of many Actor Boy awards, Dawkins has been the producer and writer of such hits as For Better or Worse, Uptown Bangarang and Which Way is Out.
