The story is set in the capital city of an Island washed by the Caribbean Sea and explores the ingrained societal prejudices faced by residents of the Inner-City, simply because of their place of residence, and some of the actions they employ to overcome considerable odds.
The writer takes us into the world of young inner-city product Charm(aine) and her struggles to provide for her family as the sole breadwinner. It is a world in which the mask of prejudice is removed to reveal some of the harsh realities of life in the ghetto, and the disdain of uptown towards their plight. Read more here

Patrick Brown – Writer, Director
A Civil Engineer, with no formal training in creative writing, Brown’s interest in writing developed while at the University of the West Indies. In fact, his first play, Cornflakes, evolved from a skit he wrote for Canada Hall’s annual variety concert in Trinidad.
Once bitten by the theatre bug, Brown was hooked. A steady stream of successes followed. A knack for writing comedy led to the highly successful television sit-com, Oliver at Large. This was soon followed by the 13 episode series Titus in Town, and a little later, the TVJ produced Tiny’s Place.
The one time hobby eventually blossomed into a full-time passion, and to date, Patrick has completed and published over 40 full lengths plays, his scripts have been studied at universities and his productions have been staged in more than two dozen States in the US, nearly every Caribbean Island and the very mention of his play coming to town causes mass excitement in Central America, Canada, and the United Kingdom!
Not one to pay much attention to titles and awards, Patrick’s scripts are regularly nominated in “Best New Jamaican Play” and “Best Production” categories in the local Actor Boy Awards, and his productions have won the “Best Comedy” award nearly every year for the past 10 years including this year and this current show, Right Girl, Wrong Address. His scripts have earned him writing awards and in recognition of his contribution to the Jamaican theatre landscape, Patrick received a National Award in 2017 – Order Of Distinction (Officer Class).
When asked about his thoughts on theatre, Patrick says:
“Caribbean theatre, I believe, is far from where it could be. Apart from Jamaica and, to a lesser extent, Trinidad, there is very little happening in theatre throughout the Caribbean. Our rich and diverse cultural heritage and our wonderful sense of humor are far too delicious to keep to ourselves. Although the population base of some of the islands would not allow a production to sit in a 250-seater for three to four months, five/six nights per week (as happens in Kingston), we need to nurture and develop the appetite for local theatre all throughout the Caribbean (and by extension, the Diaspora) This is, the challenge we ALL face.”
