Résumé

Country-boy Ivan leaves home in the Jamaican countryside and travels to Kingston, his head full of songs that he hopes will earn him fame and fortune.

Commentaires :
This had undergone some re-writing since its Stratford East outings, and, with a running time of three hours, some critics felt it was now somewhat overblown and drawn out. However, Rolan Bell’s performance was even stronger, and, in the words of the Financial Times critic, “It is very hard to dislike a show that dismisses its audience for the interval with the mischievous words ‘Fifteen minute ganja break’.” The show transferred to the Playhouse in June where it ran for fourteen weeks, closing on September 13th.
