Washington, DC, February 20, 2013 – Jamaica’s queen of comedy, Andrea ‘Delcita’ Wright, is back to treat patrons in the WDMV area to an evening of laughter and learning in Paul Beale’s hilarious play, Courthouse Drama. The play will be presented on Sunday, April 14, 2013 at the High Point High School in Beltsville, Maryland, at 7:00pm.
In the colorful landscape of Jamaican theater, the characters created in popular plays tend to take on a larger-than-life presence; spawning their very own fan base and allegiance of diehard followers. In every way imaginable, the character ‘Delcita’, portrayed by actress Andrea Wright, rings true to this phenomenon. Since Delcita's character was re-launched in 2008, Jamaican theater has been electrified. Theatergoers continuously flock to see her on stage.
The play looks at the plight of Jamaican children who are affected by learning disabilities; the inadequacies of the educational system adversely affect these children. Delcita, who is also learning disabled, does not take kindly to the government’s decision to use her in an experimental program called slow learners program. To compound issues further, her favorite teacher has serious relationship issues and Delcita has the noble task of teaching life skills to her.
“Courthouse Drama has further exposed Jamaicans to learning disabilities,” stated Lloyd Espeut of the Ina Espeut Foundation. Espeut continued, “Delcita and her cast members will artfully demonstrate how these conditions affect children and adults and identify vehicles of support.”
Thousands of patrons in Jamaica have been delighted with this comedic experience. Courthouse Drama’s dynamic supporting cast, which includes Sherene Davis, Margaret Wilson, Akeem Poyser, Patrick Smith, and Donald Thompson, is eager to enthrall patrons in the WDMV area.
