Man pleads guilty to murder

In the face of overwhelming evidence, a policeman's son pleaded guilty to murder on Monday.
Alexander Pierre Jr., 20, of Carmichael Road, entered a guilty plea in the death of Raymond Thompson on August 8, 2012 before his trial began before Justice Carolita Bethell.
Had the case gone to trial, prosecutors would have led evidence to show that Pierre, whose father is a sergeant, had an argument with Thompson about the repair of his car.
Shortly after the argument, Pierre returned to East Street and Coconut Grove Avenue with a 9mm pistol and pointed it in Thompson's face in the presence of witnesses, according to the evidence.
Thompson threw his hands up and Pierre shot him three times, according to the prosecution's case. Thompson ran but Pierre pursued him, shooting him three more times.
As Thompson struggled to get up, Pierre finished him off with two shots to the head, according to the evidence.
Thompson, 29, was one of four men tried for the 2007 murder of PC Ramos Williams and the attempted murder of his partner, Antoine Curry. He was acquitted of the charges.
Pierre, who is on remand at Her Majesty's Prisons, returns to court for sentencing on April 5.
Ian Cargill represents him and Eucal Bonaby appears for the Crown.

PLP North Abaco candidate has no chance of winning

Dear Editor,

The Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) is making plenty noise in Abaco nowadays. Opposition Leader Perry G. Christie and PLP Chairman Bradley Roberts are both convinced that Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham will be toppled at the polls in North Abaco by their standard bearer for that area, Renardo Curry.
Roberts said this much in a recent interview on the Love 97.5 FM radio talk show, "Issues of The Day". Roberts also said that the PLP's candidate for South Abaco, Gary Sawyer, will defeat the FNM's standard bearer Edison Key in that electoral contest.
Ingraham has represented the North Abaco/Cooper's Town constituency since 1977. By most accounts, the prime minister has been a very productive member of Parliament. Roberts said on the show that the young people of North Abaco are fed up with the dictatorial ways of Ingraham, and will vote for Curry, the man they have chosen to run against the prime minister in the upcoming election.
Roberts also added that Ingraham does not have a relationship with these young people. However, one wonders who these young people are. They are obviously opposed to the Free National Movement (FNM) and the prime minister. It appears as if these people are supporters of the PLP. Furthermore, other than the fact that they are opposition supporters, what exactly is their gripe with Ingraham? I mean, the prime minister has worked his tail off to build Abaco's economy during the past five years.
Abaco's economy is the third strongest in the nation, behind New Providence and Grand Bahama. A $12 million contract was recently signed for the construction of a state-of-the-art community hospital in Abaco. Additionally, a $27 million international airport is currently under construction in Marsh Harbour. The FNM government has also spent $100 million on a new Bahamas Electricity Corporation (BEC) power plant on that northern island. Ingraham has done so much in his area that several PLP representatives were complaining that Abaco has gotten too big a share of the economic pie.
That is why I am a bit baffled as to why Christie and Roberts are so confident that a political newcomer could gain a major upset victory in North Abaco against the prime minister. They cannot look you straight in the face and say that Ingraham has been an ineffective, incompetent member of Parliament. I am sure that they would have loved to go around The Bahamas and say that Ingraham has been a poor representative for his area, but they can't do that. Apparently, Christie and Roberts have come to the incredible conclusion that Ingraham is in deep trouble in North Abaco because of what some young PLP supporters have told them - hardly convincing.
If the young voters of a prosperous North Abaco constituency feel so dissatisfied with the prime minister's representation, then what is the political mood of the young voters in the impoverished constituency of Farm Road? If one were to compare Ingraham's performance in North Abaco with the performance of Perry Christie in Farm Road, you would honestly have to conclude that the prime minister has outperformed the PLP leader. Farm Road is one of the most impoverished constituencies in The Bahamas. There have been reports that many Bahamians living in that area are living in substandard houses without indoor plumbing.
Yet Christie has continued to win that seat by huge margins. It is my humble opinion that Christie doesn't deserve to win Farm Road anymore. His critics have alleged that Farm Road has been badly neglected over the years he has represented that area. However, rather than working to improve the economy of that constituency, Christie wants to pound his political chest in North Abaco instead. In light of all that Ingraham has accomplished for his constituents over the past five years, the question that I would like to ask is this: What possible reason would the voters of North Abaco have for rejecting Ingraham at the polls? They have absolutely no reason at all to vote against the prime minister.
Ingraham should win his contest with his hands tied behind his back and his eyes blindfolded. Despite the optimism of the hierarchy of the PLP, Renardo Curry does not stand a snowball's chance in hell of defeating Ingraham in North Abaco.

It is all about leadership

Dear Editor,

Hubert Ingraham and the Free National Movement (FNM) have tried desperately to make this political campaign a referendum on his leadership. They have attempted to compare his leadership record and style to that of Perry Christie's. All things being equal it may have worked; apparently it did work in 2007. We now have a track record of both leaders taking political office after a recession.
Firstly, any credible leader would leave his country better off than he met it. Can Bahamians honestly declare that they are better off in 2012 than they were in 2007? I think that most reasonable people will concede that Christie left The Bahamas in better condition in 2007 than he met in 2002. Better condition refers to the quality of life of Bahamians. Let us examine some of the indices that underpin quality of life and form the basis for Ingraham's hubris.
Here is what the prime minister promised in an earlier Speech from the Throne: "My government will restore fiscal discipline to the public finances of the country, and will ensure that value is obtained for public expenditure and public business."
Time has proven that Hubert Ingraham cannot credibly lecture anyone on his leadership merits when it comes to fiscal discipline. When he returned to office in 2007, Hubert Ingraham met the national debt at $2.9 billion. It has now ballooned to $4.6 billion and by the end of this fiscal year the national debt is expected to be in the area of $5 billion. That is a net increase of some $2.1 billion in just five years. What kind of leader would make such a promise and then explode the national debt by over $2 billion in just five years?
One of the most important indicators of a nation's quality of life is the safety of its citizens. Can Bahamians truthfully claim that crime and the fear of crime are less now than they were in 2007? How can you boast of your leadership prowess after having presided over the most murderous and violent era in the history of The Bahamas?
Over 457 murders over a period of less than five years! Additionally, every other category of violent crime increased during this glorious leadership reign. A true leader would have taken measures necessary to reduce the incidents of violent crime and the fear of crime. Hubert Ingraham and the FNM have not demonstrated the kind of leadership needed in mobilizing and uniting communities in the fight against violence and criminal behavior.
Other areas where Hubert Ingraham's leadership has failed miserably are education and immigration control. These are issues vital to the quality of life of Bahamians. The FNM under Hubert Ingraham's leadership has failed to improve the education system institutionally, structurally or systemically and his leadership has failed to adequately prepare Bahamian students for the world after school. This is a terrible indictment on leadership.
Moreover, Bahamians feel that because of the immigration policies implemented by the FNM they have very little stake in the ownership of the county's economy, nor are they permitted to compete fairly in their own country. The immigration policies seem to curry favor foreign labor and foreign investors. This state of affairs does not bode well for the stability of the society.
Most failed leaders look to something or someone to blame for their failure. The global recession has been a convenient whipping dog for Hubert Ingraham and the FNM. However, Hubert Ingraham once pronounced that any leader worth his salt would anticipate a future recession and take corrective measures to mitigate the impact of that recession. Here is what he had to say in one of his earlier budget communications: "Furthermore, these budgetary problems were allowed to develop at a time when a prudent government would have recognized that cautionary measures should have been in place to meet any likelihood of a major recession in the U.S. economy, and to cushion the resultant impact on our tourism-driven economy."
How prudent was Ingraham's government? He went on to indict the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) government by pronouncing: "It cannot be said that those who were responsible for managing the economy did not know hard times were coming, they just chose to ignore all the indicators."
Surely in 2007/2008, Ingraham knew a recession and resulting hard times were approaching? All fiscal and economic indicators pointed to it. Judging by his reckless response to, and the irresponsible choices made during, the recession Ingraham appeared to have been caught off guard by the recession. So much for leadership!
Leadership in government is about building and strengthening institutions that enhance democracy and improve the quality of life for citizens. Leadership in government is about inspiring people to achieve their dreams and ambitions. It is about building national consensus and compromise. Leadership is about mobilizing and consolidating the resources and talents of citizens toward national development. Leadership is not about demagoguery; it is not about power, intimidation and bullying.
So if I were the PLP or Democratic National Alliance, I would welcome a campaign based on leadership. I would put Ingraham's record, all of it, against the acid test of true leadership. I would seek to determine whether his five years of leadership improved the quality of life of Bahamians. I would simply ask if Bahamians were better off in 2012 than they were in 2007 - a simple and measurable reality - and let the people decide.

Search for 'Glory Time' captain continues

The search for the captain of the vessel that capsized in waters off North Abaco earlier this week continues, according to Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade.
The commissioner claimed the captain is known to police.
At least 11 people died when the 'Glory Time' went down Sunday night.
Seven people reportedly survived the disaster, which police claim was the result of an illegal smuggling operation.
Ten people are still unaccounted for and feared dead.
Greenslade noted that the captain, if caught, would likely be charged for the deaths.
"It's a tragedy that should not have happened, but it speaks to this business of human smuggling and the challenges and risk associated with [it]," said Greenslade. "[It's] very unfortunate that children have lost their lives and adults have lost their lives because of that criminal activity."
Minister of National Security Dr. Bernard Nottage said Tuesday that according to reports the passengers of the sunken 25-foot vessel paid $5,000 a head for the journey to the United States.
Superintendent Noel Curry said on Tuesday that police hope that some survivors were able to make it to one of the Abaco cays.
He said of the seven survivors, one person has come forward.
Curry said the male, who is in his late teens, reported that he along with six other males swam to shore.
The survivor said the captain was not among that group. Curry said the teen provided the identity of the captain to police. Curry identified the captain only as a "known sailor".
He said the survivor was assisting police with their investigations.

Conch and Kalik prove to be a winning combination

Conch and Kalik have come together and are proving to be a winning combination at one of the island's newest restaurants -- Conch N' Kalik Bar and Grill. It's the place where the mollusk and native beer can be found in almost every offering from the appetizer portion of the menu through to the soups and salads, burgers, sandwiches and wraps, and their specialties. But the chefs hold off on pushing the envelope and adding it into any of their dessert items.
At Conch N' Kalik Bar and Grill located in Pompey Square, downtown, the menu features items that are twists on regular appetizers -- think conch chili fries (ground conch chili, sharp cheddar on seasoned fries), nachos (tri-colored nachos topped with homemade aged cheddar and Kalik beer cheese sauce, diced tomatoes, pickled jalapenos, guacamole and sour cream), firecracker conch spring roll (an oversized handcrafted crispy roll with blackened conch, vegetables, rice noodles and sweet tamarind dipping sauce), conch scampi, conch fettuccinie with garlic bread, conch parmesan with fettucini pasta and garlic bread, island-style coconut curry conch and conch and crab cake.
There are other unique offerings featuring the two ingredients after which the restaurant is named, like the Black Angus Beef Burger (with aged cheddar and Kalik beer cheese sauce, Kalik's double crunch onion ring, pecan smoked bacon, shredded lettuce, heirloom tomatoes on a Brioche bun) and deep water conch salad sandwich (fried conch on whole grain ciabbata bread with sour-orange mayo, shredded lettuce and vegetable salsa).
The menu items were all dreamed up in the mind of Chef Devin Johnson who opened the restaurant, but has now moved on and left it in the capable hands of Chef Eunesha Solomon who now wears the executive sous chef hat. It's a task she's up to. When Chef Devin came on board to open the restaurant, he headhunted Chef Eunesha from their previous place of employment to take over after he moved on.
Before he left, Chef Devin said the 50-item menu took him six weeks to come up with and master. A chef who is big on playing up local ingredients who has served as the national team manager for many years, he said it was a delight to come up with the menu that showcases Bahamian ingredients.
And the portion sizes are huge. He said they had to do it that way to give people their money's worth.
"People eat with their eyes, and people love it," said Chef Devin of the oversized, tasty portions that they have become known for.
They also offer a signature creamy conch and roast corn chowder (chunks of conch meat with fresh roasted corn, root vegetables and a hint of goat pepper), mango barbeque ranch chicken salad (mango, avocado, grape tomatoes, grilled corn, pigeon peas, cucumbers and romaine lettuce tossed with a mango infused barbeque ranch dressing, topped with crispy fried onions that are surprising people that are so good).
And there are also specialty offerings -- the tamarind glazed flat iron steak, mango rum basted pork baby back ribs, lobster fettucine (only served during the season), and Kalik Gold beer battered fish and chips.
And you can't have a restaurant that serves conch without offering Bahamian favorites like like cracked conch and Bahamian style steam conch. There's also a Bahamian style grilled conch, conch salad and the conch salad of the day that is upstaging the traditional salad - the tropical. Conch N' Kalik serves theirs with pineapple, mango and green apple.
According to Chef Solomon, the profile at Conch N' Kalik is all about flavor.
While they're proud of their food, the libations menu at the restaurant isn't to be sneezed at, and they say you have to have their signature drink called a Kalik-arita, where the Kalik of your choice meets a margarita base.
And while they just didn't take a chance on incorporating conch or Kalik into any of their desserts, they do offer tasty endings to satisfy the sweet tooth - guava duff, passion fruit and white chocolate cheesecake, carrot-pineapple cake and a dark rich chocolate cake with a Caribbean twist which means it has a banana-coconut mousse and finished with almonds.
With its first location open, the proprietors of Conch N' Kalik are planning to open another four locations -- one in Abaco, Grand Bahama, Turks and Caicos Islands and Florida.
Conch and Kalik is open daily. They start their beverage service at 10 a.m. Their food service starts at 11 a.m. They close at midnight.

Most boating tragedy victims unidentified

Only four of the 11 victims of the recent Abaco human smuggling tragedy have been identified, according to Haitian Ambassador to The Bahamas Antonio Rodrigue.
Rodrigue said yesterday the four victims identified were children. He thinks the families of other victims have not come forward because they fear authorities would arrest them.
The ambassador traveled to Abaco on the weekend where he met with families of survivors of the mass drowning in Abaco waters last Sunday night.
Officials said seven people survived and another 10 were still unaccounted for.
It is believed the Haitians were trying to make it to the United States after leaving Abaco when the vessel they were on, 'Cozy Time', capsized.
Rodrigue told The Nassau Guardian that some relatives of the victims have gone into hiding because police have been coming to their homes as a part of the probe into the smuggling operation.
He also said he received reports that other survivors are in hiding and are refusing to seek medical attention because they fear they may be arrested.
"People are afraid of the police," Rodrigue said. "Police officers are looking for people crying or mourning. When they hear people grieving they come to the house asking questions and sometimes they even arrest people."
The ambassador said he raised this issue with Superintendent Noel Curry, the police officer in charge of Abaco.
"The other problem also that I raised with him is the fact that we don't know how many people survived," Rodrigue said.
"The bodies haven't been recovered and maybe the same way those seven swam and got to the land [others did]. But because of the fear of being arrested no one has come forward to say 'I have been on the boat and I survived'."
Police reported last week that only one survivor had come forward and was assisting in their investigation into the matter.
Police also reported on Friday that they arrested five men in connection with the incident, three at Potter's Cay Dock in Nassau and two in Abaco.
After releasing a wanted poster for Alphonse Edner, alias "Capo", police said yesterday they had the 43-year-old Treasure Cay resident in custody.
Rodrique told The Nassau Guardian, "There are people who it looks have been wounded among the survivors, but they are afraid to go to get medical care. Most of those who have survived have gone into hiding.
"It is very serious and the reason why I went to the police chief. He said the police want to get information regarding this; that's why they are investigating and questioning people, but when people see police coming over there and knocking on their doors and some have been arrested, no one wants to stay there.
"They cannot get medical care and they may end up dying. I think police need to know about the operation but they need to take that into account."
Rodrique said he also expressed these concerns to Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Dr. Patricia Rodgers.
The ambassador said he expressed condolences to the families on behalf of the Haitian president and prime minister.
He said he told the Haitian people that the embassy is with them but discouraged smuggling attempts.
Asked whether he was able to determine whether any additional smuggling operations are being planned, Rodrigue said, "They're not going to say that and I think after what happened it is going to be some time before people get back to that. This is a shock for the entire community. They are still in shock.
"You feel there is that sadness among those people living in Abaco, especially regarding those nine kids who died.
"It was sad, but a good visit; good in the sense where the people over there feel the embassy is with them, is assisting them."
The ambassador said funeral arrangements for the victims will be finalized this week.

Bahamian baseball history dotted with pro players

Jeff Williams laments the decline of the Bahamas Baseball Association (BBA) for over three decades. He has a strong appreciation for the Bahamas Baseball Federation (BBF) which has been a breeding ground for younger players.
"We lost a lot when our senior program died," he said.
The BBA was in turmoil and not producing quality players as it once did, years before the Andre Rodgers Diamond was torn down in 2006. That act though was like the nail in the coffin. The BBA never caught itself and now appears to be an organization in name only. Despite it all though, even a sports hard-liner like Williams readily admits there is much richness to the baseball history in this country to be proud of. Of course, the coming on stream of the BBF at the same time the BBA was slipping badly, helped greatly to cement the baseball legacy in the nation.
Williams proudly points to the many professionals developed, nurtured and refined by the BBA. There was in fact that storied period of the BBA. There was much to celebrate about during the 1950s, the 1960s and the 1970s. That was a period when The Bahamas was churning out professional baseball players faster than the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Venezuela.
Andre Rodgers started it all in 1954 when he signed a contract with the New York Giants organization. He would go up to the major leagues to stay in 1957, until 1967. Behind him came some 47 more professionals. Five of them followed him into the majors -- Tony Curry, Wenty Ford, Ed Armbrister, Will Culmer, and just last season, Antoan Richardson reached the elite circle.
The others that got into the professional mix include the following: Vincent Ferguson, Edmondo Moxey, Lionel Rodgers, George Weech, Randy Rolle, Adrian Rodgers, Vince Albury, Hugh Bethel, Eddie Ford, Henry Williams, Simeon Humes, Eugene Thompson, Frankie Sands, Jayson Moxey, Fred Smith, Roy Bethel, Randy Rodgers, Roosevelt Turner, Fred Taylor, Colin Thompson, Sidney McKinney, Sidney Outten, Kendal Munroe, Pat Ingraham, Shad Rolle, Douggie Smith, Randy Thompson, David "Billy" Mycklewhite, Louis McQuay, Creswell Pratt, Andre Wood, Jackie Wright, Ken Adderley, Jervis Stuart, Winston Seymour, Angelo Burrows, Jammal Johnson, Albert Cartwright, Geron Sands, Greg Burrows, Neil Forsythe and Sean Albury.
That's a nice list, but many of us who have followed the game here, some from the very beginning and the others, are convinced the number would have been larger had the BBA not gone into a funk. Nevertheless, there is the BBF. Presently the BBF provides these numbers:
Professional rank - Richardson, Cartwright, Albury, and including American-born Trayce Thompson, the son of Bahamian basketball great Mychal Thompson.
Present high school/college players in United States - Desmond Russell, Ali Knowles, Dale Davis, Steve Curtis, Lynden Pindling, Byron Ferguson Jr., Byron Murray, Anfernee Seymour, Stephen Russell Jr., Alex Roberts, Ramon Grant, Geren Albury, Tameko Williamson, Anthony Russell, Chad Burrows, Daniel Johnson Jr., Marvin McQueen, Harkeem Cooper, Perez Knowles, D'Juan Seymour, Trae Sweeting, Morgan Souder, Travis Strachan, Ian Fox, Alex Martinborough, Arien Seymour, Lance Edwards, Leighton Gibson, Rodney Forbes, Lyndale Morley, Javon Davis, Keanu Thompson, Todd Isaacs, Ashton Pratt, Dino Sweeting, Jerome Jones, Chachard Laing, Rio Russell, Devin Simmons, Gerrio Rahming, Tevin Symonette, Lucius Fox, A.J. Romer, Henry Thompson, Andrew Pindling, Zach Thurman, Ashton Butler, Arthur Rolle, Seberon Morley, Nick Ferguson, Tramaine Roker, Giles Chisholm, D'wight Rahming, Shannon Johnson, Brandon Taylor, Justin Sweeting, Myron Johnson, Pedro Dean, Kyle Parks, Michael Treco, Cameron Richardson, George Ratliffe and Yokito Pinder.
That's a nice group of young diamond performers. Two years ago, the Freedom Farm 12-and-under squad won the Cal Ripken World Series crown. Williams admits that the country's baseball future is looking bright. The BBF environment certainly is a healthy one.

Hang out with Alexandra under the Caribbean moon

If it's summer, you know it's time to spend an evening (and the early morning hours if you can hang) with Alexandra Maillis-Lynch as Events by Alexandra hosts Under the Caribbean Moon III.
You are invited to don you diamonds -- but leave your stilettos at home -- for a beach play date for the grownups (no curfew enforced) and partake in the decadent spread that Alexandra will put out that is expected to be a sizzling, sexy, fun display of fusion-Caribbean flavors with an adventurous take on island comfort food tonight.
This year Alexandra's menu takes you across many Caribbean countries like to Latin America and of course The Bahamas, with a little Asian influence thrown in -- just because she can
At station one, you can indulge your taste for Caribbean-Latin roots with a whole roast pig, Cuban roast duck yemaya with orange rum glaze, marinated sirloin steaks with chimichurri sauce and a Cuban pumpkin salad.
If your taste buds are hankering for new world cuisine, Carib-Asian fried chicken wings, short rib sliders, fresh catch ceviche spoons and crab cakes which will be served with salsa Esmeralda, or Alexandra's famous voodoo cocktail sauce and Bahamian cocktail sauce will be the order of the day at station two.
For those people who love the heat, station three which has been dubbed "Calypso Fire & Spice" is where you need to be. Guadeloupian goat curry empanadas, jerked chicken, cabbage salad with pineapple and peanuts and condiments that run from kuchela, to mango chutney and white rice can be had.
"Sweet love in the islands says it all about station four, because satisfying the sweet tooth takes center stage at station four -- rum-soaked banana fritters with mocha rum sauce, coconut flan with curried custard sauce, passion fruit cheesecake with passion fruit glaze and tropical fruit and ginger cookies ... Need I say anymore?
Those people who are able to hang until the wee hours of the morning can partake in the offerings at station five, which has been dubbed Midnight breakfast in the Islands." Tropical Creole breakfast bread pudding, fire engine and grits, pig's feet souse with Johnny bread and English sausages are to be had.
Alexandra wants you to leave her summer hit event feeling like you've been to an upscale regatta without having to get on a boat. And it all takes place on the beach under the stars at the Maillis property on Adelaide Road.
The finger-licking menu includes a midnight breakfast, open bar, and dangerous ... delicious island cocktails. Live music and a deejay are always the order of the day, and a bonfire invites people to get cozy.
Tickets for Under The Caribbean Moon III, an all-inclusive beach play date for grown ups that always offers decadent indulgences are $125. The party kicks off at 8:30 p.m. For reservations for tonight's event email contact Catherine@ventsbyalexandra.com. It's an event I never miss. If you've not been before it's time to go and you can't say I didn't tell you.

One Month To Go

All negotiations are done, all plays have been chosen, actors are in rehearsal and the venues are all set for the 4th annual Shakespeare in Paradise Theatre Festival. In one month on October 5, the festival will officially open. This year there are five productions in five venues throughout Nassau.
First our Signature Shakespeare production "Merchant". This is the classic tale of "The Merchant of Venice", but since our production is set in The Bahamas, the "Venice" part of the title has been dropped. Gordon Mills, an actor in previous Shakespeare in Paradise productions and a veteran of the local theatre scene has taken on the task of directing, and for the first time in our short history, the venue for our signature Shakespeare production has moved from the Dundas to The College of The Bahamas in their beautifully renovated Performing Arts Centre. There will be eight performances with four of them being exclusive student matinees that will take place at 11 a.m. on the October 2-5. The other four performances will be open to the general public and can be seen on Thursday, October 4, which will be a special preview performance with discounted tickets for students and seniors. Friday, October 5 is the opening night for the festival and "Merchant" will be performed at 8 p.m. and again on Saturday evening, also at 8 p.m. The closing performance will take place at 4 p.m. on Sunday, October 7.
Our signature Bahamian production welcomes back playwright/actress/director Jeanne Thompson with her playwright hat on this time and her newly written one act play, "Back of the Moon". We will also present one of her classics, "Father's Day". This evening of two one acts is being called "Out o' Wedlock" and is directed by our festival's artistic director, Philip A. Burrows. The cast is a mixture of newcomers and veterans and this production will take place at the Dundas. There will be a total of eight public performances beginning with a special preview on Thursday, October 4, where again we will offer discount tickets for students and seniors. The remaining evening performances will take place on the October 5 (our opening night), October 6, October 11 and October 12. "Out o' Wedlock" will also have two matinee performances - one on October 6 and another one on October 12 holiday. Both matinees begin at 2 p.m.
As a part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Trinidad and Tobago's independence, Shakespeare in Paradise is pleased to present "Lion City Live". This production features Freetown, which consists of two Trinidadians, Muhammad Muwakil and Lou Lyons. This evening offers music, poetry and more. Performances will take place October 9 and October 11 at Antonius Roberts' Hillside House and on October 13 at Nirvana. Performances will begin at 8 p.m.
Continuing with 50th anniversary celebrations, Shakespeare in Paradise will also present, from Jamaica, "Mr & Mrs Blacke". This play is coming off a very successful and critically acclaimed run at the Philip Sherlock Centre at the University of the West Indies. The cast features Keiran King, who is also the playwright, and Sakina Deer. Paul Issa directs and the play is co-produced by Raisha Lovindeer. Performances will take place at the Dundas on October 9, October 10 and October 12 at 8 p.m.
Speak the Speech is a new work created by Philip A. Burrows and compiled by Nicolette Bethel. Research for this work comes mostly from The College of The Bahamas with help from Stephen Aranha, Christopher Curry, Clifford Rahming, Michael Stevenson, Nicolette Bethel and her students. Other research help comes from Reva Cartwright-Carroll, Dr. Gail Saunders and Philip A. Burrows. This production will consist of a series of speeches and correspondences from the landfall of Christopher Columbus to the present day Bahamas. Toni Francis, Nicolette Bethel and Philip A. Burrows will handle the staging for this work. Appropriately, this production will take place at The Bahamas Historical Society and performance dates will be October 8, October 10, October 11 and October 13 at 8 p.m.
Tickets for Shakespeare in Paradise productions are $25. We also offer discount ticket rates for students, seniors and groups. We believe that the best deal is our season ticket that gives you the opportunity to see all five productions with a savings of $25. The box office for Shakespeare in Paradise will open on September 17 at the Dundas Centre and will run Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. until October 13, the closing day of the festival. If you have questions about advance bookings please feel free to contact us at 431-7197. For a full calendar and more information, visit shakespeaereinparadise.org and also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
