For the first time, the NGC Bocas
Lit Fest is heading to south and central
The festival takes place annually in
Port-of-Spain and has had events in
Tobago. Next weekend, however, a spe-
cial weekend-long programme of events
will bring the NGC Bocas Lit Fest to San
Fernando and Chaguanas, right to the
doorstep of readers and festival fans in
south and central Trinidad.
"The inaugural NGC Bocas Lit Fest
South+Central will feature a diverse
collection of readings by talented
Trinidadian authors on November 16,
hosted by two bookshops: RIK Services
Ltd in Gulf City Mall, La Romaine, and
Nigel R Khan Booksellers in Mid Centre
Mall, Chaguanas," Bocas said in a press
release. "And budding writers can sign
up for a series of workshops on Novem-
ber 17, at the Southern Academy for
the Performing Arts in San Fernando."
Registration is required for the work-
shops. For further info on them, click

A cast of local theatre veterans took
the stage at the Trinidad Theatre Work-
shop (TTW) on October 27 to present
a reading of One From Ten (Leaves
Naught), a new play by Tony Hall.
The reading was staged by the
National Drama Association (NDATT)
as part of this year s National Drama
Festival, which was held in honour of
Hall s work.
The play imagines some of the
Caribbean region s political and cultural
luminaries trapped in a sort of limbo-
The group---including Eric Williams,
Alexander Bustamante, Grantley
Adams, Cheddi Jagan, Louise Bennett,
Edna Manley and Beryl McBurnie---
exchange banter and sometimes barbs
as they examine the history of the
region and the failed Federation of the
West Indies in the 1950s.
The politicians, all in wheelchairs,
are obsessed with escaping from the
space through a doorway---although,
as Hall explained, there are no walls.
During a discussion at the end of
the reading, audience members dis-
cussed interpretations of the work and
asked the playwright about his inten-
tions. Hall said the play was written
"in the moment" without prior plan-
ning. He said he used a process where
he tried to allow the characters to speak
in their own voices; the result was an
experiment in non-linear storytelling,
from which he wanted viewers to take
away their own conclusions.
The reading featured TTW artistic
director Albert Laveau, Michael Cherrie,
Ronald John, Errol "Blood" Roberts,
Arnold "Pinny" Goindhan, Eunice
Alleyne, Teresa Awai, Susan Hannays
Abraham, Cecilia Salazar and Evelyn
Caesar-Munroe. TTW assistant artistic
director Timmia Hearn Feldman pre-
sented the reading.
