Derek Walcott s succulent comedy Pantomime
will be produced at The Little Carib Theatre next
month for a limited run.
The play, one of Walcott s best, will feature
Michael Cherrie as Jackson Phillip and Maurice
Brash as Harry Trewe. It is being directed by
Brenda Hughes and produced by Fifth Business,
a theatre production company.
With music composed by Raff Robertson, and
choreography by Carol La Chapelle, the story
takes place in 1978, in a rundown guest house in
Tobago. The set has been designed by Chadd
Cumberbatch, of Montserrat, and the lighting
design will be by Benny Gomes.
When the play opens, guest house manager
Trewe (Brash) and manservant Phillip (Cherrie) are
alone in the guest house which is closed for repairs.
Trewe, an old Music Hall actor, is trying to get
Phillip, a retired calypsonian, to help him create a
pantomime with which to entertain the guests
when the guest house reopens the following week.

Trewe wants the pantomime to be about
Robinson Crusoe and Man Friday, with
Trewe as Robinson Crusoe. Phillip resists
because he thinks it is a stupid idea, plus
he does not want to be an entertainer any
longer. Eventually Trewe suggests that
they reverse the roles. When an enthused
Phillip assumes the role of Robinson Cru-
soe, thus assigning the Englishman to the
role of Man Friday, Trewe, upon realising
the implications, calls off the pantomime.
Phillip refuses to accept that and his reac-
tion catches Trewe off-guard and non-
This hilarious comedy has sobering
undertones and begs questions about
(British) colonialism, the hotel industry,
and master/servant relationships. It is
great fun and promises to have patrons
in tears and stitches from laughter, while
it stimulates retrospection.
Brash, a multitalented actor, created
the role of Trewe a lonely, pathetic, British
expatriate consigned to "desolation" in
the Caribbean in the original version of
the play. This version is Walcott s rewrite.
Brash therefore brings a special resonance
to the production.
Cherrie, the consummate actor, plays
the servant and retired calypsonian, and
has embraced the role with both arms
and a creative mind. He brings an inter-
esting interpretation to Phillip s role. To
quote Cherrie, "Jackson Phillip is one of
the few good roles for a male Trinidadian
Part proceeds of the play will go to the
