‘A Babydoll Born’ is part of ‘A Carnival Dream: The Trilogy’. In this act, a young girl, Bee, meets Robert and is swept away by his eloquent lyrics. She forsakes her friends and disobeys her parents by making plans to meet the young man during the carnival. Misled by Robert, Bee gets lost in the masquerade where she learns what the consequences of her choices can bring.

Stacy has been a Theatre Arts teacher for the past nine years. She directed two documentaries, one of which won awards locally and in the US. Recently, she began writing plays and other fiction. Her works are heavily based on various aspects of Trinidad and Tobago cultural forms.

The PWT, in partnership with the Trinidad Theatre Workshop and The Trinidad and Tobago Performing Arts Network, is inviting actors, playwrights, directors, producers and the general public to partake in the reading and discussion of the play.

The event will be held on Wednesday September 5, 2018, 7PM at the Trinidad Theatre Workshop, 6 Newbold Street, St Clair. Admission is FREE but Space Is Limited.


Come one. Come all. Bring a friend.
