Deon Silvera, a three-time recipient of the prestigious Best Actress award and an inductee in the Caribbean Hall of Fame for outstanding achievements in theatre, brings another scandal to the Washington, D. C. metropolitan area. The play—Scandal— will be presented on Sunday, September 22, 2013 at the High Point High School in Beltsville, Maryland, at 7:00pm, admission is $30 in advance, $40 at the door.
This amazing comedy, written by Micahel Denton, will treat patrons to raucous laughter, heart-warming tears, and inspire thoughts to accentuate decent morals. The plot surrounds Stanley Stancock, from Mocho, Clarendon, who impregnates his girlfriend then flees to the big city of Kingston. He becomes very financially successful and lives lavishly. His wife employs a young girl to work as a domestic helper in their home. Stanley’s wife was totally unaware of his episode back in Mocho, Clarendon.
The real irony is that Stanley does not know who the girl is. He eventually gets into a relationship with her which is about to produce a child. According to Balford Henry of the Gleaner, the events which transpire are what make the play, “Really worth seeing.”
