The National Drama Association of Trinidad and Tobago’s (NDATT) Playwrights Workshop Trinbago (PWT) Monthly Readers Theatre Series (MRTS), held the first Wednesday of every month, will feature the reading of excerpts from the screenplay, How to Get Away With Horn, for the May instalment. The series will continue online in light of the precautionary measures implemented as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The reading will take place via Zoom meeting only on May 5 at 7 PM (AST GMT-4).
The screenplay follows Nekeda as she explores a much-debated topic in the Caribbean, “Horn,” on her YouTube channel. The playwright said, “Learn how to get away with horn the right way from Nekeda as she teaches you her ten rules to cheat, while we observe the lives of three married couples. While researching for her video she learns a few tips, uncovers dirty secrets and unexpectedly lands herself right in the middle of family drama.”
Veronique Francois is a playwright, director and teacher at Bishop’s Centenary College.
