‘Strong Currents’ Play at UVI

​Strong currents cleverly pulled laughter out the bellies of at least 100 attendees at The Little Theatre on the 55th birthday of the University of the Virgin Islands (UVI). With a packed room, the March 16 opening night at the UVI Little Theatre, directed by Professor David Edgecombe, presented Strong Currents. The play was written in tribute to Austin Clarke, originally from Barbados, who became one of Canada’s foremost authors.

About the Play: From the Playbill

Bernice, Estelle, Dots, Boysie and Henry all moved from the Caribbean to Toronto in search of a better life. Together they weather the ‘storms of fortune,’ but when Henry aspires to be a poet, the others ridicule him. It is the strength of their friendships that will determine who swims and Aho sinks in strong currents.
