About the play

From acclaimed Jamaican writer Barry Reckord it tells the story of a young white woman who falls in love with a black man at a time when their love is forbidden. The play deals with fallout from their relationship from forced marriage to barbaric punishments which provoked communities and inspired uprisings. Based on a true story set around Rose hall in 18th century Jamaica it is a tale of mysticism, love, cruelty and revenge cast against the unforgiving backdrop of the transatlantic slave trade. This powerful, moving and thought provoking play is a must see
