Video: Discover the Story Behind Red Snapper

Posted on 29 February 2016

Currently in rehearsals, new play Red Snapper will open on the Belgrade’s B2 stage this March transporting us to Jamaica in 1962, a country on the verge of independence. The story focuses on the lives of a group of ordinary women as they prepare a feast to welcome Cuba’s communist leader, Fidel Castro. As personal and political tensions simmer below the surface and with the arrival of this high profile visitor imminent, it’s not just the cooking pot that’s in danger of boiling over.

In this video interview, Writer Liz Mytton and Director Justine Themen introduce the characters, who will be played by a black all-female cast and discuss the reasons for wanting to tell the stories of ordinary women, at such a pertinent time in Jamaica’s history.
