A story of a teacher and his calypso apprentice, Rum and Coca Cola is a gently humorous, bittersweet tale written by the fine dramatist, Mustapha Matura. The two characters, Slim and Professor survive on their ‘refreshment capital’, living at the end of the beach amongst driftwood, fallen coconut trees and empty rum bottles. And as Professor ‘speechifies’ about his life, one that’s been lost and stolen, Slim tries to grasp a brighter future.
The post-show talk on opening night will probe further into the play, and is attended by director Don Warrington, playwright Mustapha Matura, musical director Dominique Legendre, and Dr. Bob Ramdhanie, the expert in Trinidadian music.
What people are saying...
"Overall this play was a celebration of Trinidadian styles, culture and traditions, much of which should hold a place in any society. The humour wasn’t side-splitting but a gentle reminder of the values of that society and the inexplicable realisation that the older generation should be valued."
