  1. […] I did direct them to this website, and to …conch een ga no bone. But to be a little helpful, there’s now a page on which we’ve listed all the Bahamian plays we can think of. Note: the groundbreaking work of Fr. John Taylor, recognized as the first real Bahamian playwright, isn’t listed there — we’d be happy if people would let us know about that. […]

    Just read your list of Bahamian Plays. Please contact Sue Shepherd McCrea at Mary Star of the Sea School in Freeport. She has written some wonderful Bahamian plays over the years. Two of which comes to mind right now is “The Woman From Nassau” and “Staff Room Gossip” among many others.

    Thanks! Will do. I know Sue — didn’t realize she’d written that many plays.

    You may want to subscribe to this blog, and keep track of when we’re having auditions. We’ll be putting on a theatre season later in the year with several plays, some of them new. Also keep your eye on the newspapers towards the end of the summer.

    Thanks for dropping by!
