The National Theatre Arts Com-
pany is presenting Errol Hill's cel-
ebrated play Man Better Man this
month at the National Academy of
the Performing Arts (Napa) in Port-
It is an important play and recog-
nises a Trinidad theatre legend. Errol
Hill---who wrote several plays, acted,
directed, taught theatre in Africa, the
Caribbean and the United States---wrote
the first serious study of Carnival. He
brought a young Peter Minshall in to
do design work for him at Dartmouth
College, USA, where Hill became head

Hand, a little remembered British draw-

The play had been a success in Lon-
