The Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS) Drama Society will perform a live performance of the original play production “The Unveiling of Sayretta,” on April 22 and 23.
The play was written and directed by Mrs. Janice George-Harris and was first debuted at the 9th biennial Caribbean Secondary Schools Drama festival held in Trinidad and Tobago, November 2015.
Playwright and English/Drama Instructor at the Elmore Stoutt High School, Mrs. Janice George-Harris said that the play focuses on life and one’s reaction to situations in which he or she finds him or herself.
Mrs. George-Harris added, “The main character finds her defining moment in life when she is met by an unexpected revelation that threatens to unravel her life. It is only when she faces reality and accepts herself for who she is that she begins to emerge as the real “unveiled Sayretta.”
