MA’s Playhouse brings the Caribbean Folklore to Brooklyn Director, Antonevia Ocho-Coultes has re-imagined this classic Walcott piece. It is a fairy tale like so many others that explores the fight between good and evil. It follows the journey of three brothers who each try their hand at defeating the devil, in an attempt to free themselves from their present poverty stricken predicament. The forest comes alive as all of nature rises to the challenge of this battle. It tackles the themes of power, wealth, the status quo and knowledge for its own sake, with such frivolity and depth, that it transports you at once to another world and yet grounds you in the realities of all times. The production employs mask and animal work, as well as elements of Kabuki, in its bid to express the universality of this world. It’s as much fantasy and fate that a re-imagined look at the postcolonial Caribbean status quo can offer and much much more. MA’s Playhouse seeks to showcase the voice of the Caribbean, through showcasing the work of Caribbean/Caribbean American playwrights, actors, and artists. It seeks to produce new as well as established works. It encourages intercultural understanding in its multicultural approach to theater and prides itself on the production of culturally and emotionally driven works. www.masplayhouse.com
