Thousands of theatre loving fans have enjoyed Haughton’s depiction of joy and sadness that some families experience from the process of obtaining legal residency status in Canada.
The play is about: A hardworking and smart woman, who returns to her native land of Jamaica, fell in love with the man of her dreams— a not so bright farmer— sponsors him and his unruly teenage son to Canada. What happens next between all three, her stroke-stricken mother, and her illegal and cantankerous half sister will make you wonder; filled with drama, comedy, betrayal, secrets and more.
A satisfied patron wrote on blogTO, “I have only one word to describe Mi Get Mi Landed, and that is FABULOUS!! Devon really outdid himself this time around. Each time he comes out with a play it tops the previous. All the performers were absolutely wonderful.”
