“Blood Ticka Dan Watah” Drama, Laughter, in short an Audience Pleaser!
The City of Brampton and adjoining districts are in for a real treat on Sunday October 22 when Marcia Brown Productions new stage play “Blood Ticka Dan Watah” makes at stop at Central Peel Secondary School. All the elements that audiences have come to appreciate and trust from Marcia Brown Productions stage plays will be up front and centre in “Blood Ticka Dan Watah”.
The play written by Marcia Brown and directed by Douglas Prout; follows a story sadly familiar to many an immigrant woman but is particularly laden with a Jamaican nuance. Imagine being a young immigrant woman in Canada who has left twins behind in Jamaica to be raised by their grandmother, given a new lease on life, starting a new family with new husband and not knowing how to disclose her prior twins. The secret has been kept for far too long and the emotional toll of this burden is evident as the story unfolds for each character. When the twins are revealed, they quickly become the new unwelcomed guests in a new country and new family and if not for the intervention of their Grandmother “Mada May” their fate would be dismal. Needless to say we arrive at the purpose behind the play’s name after edge-of-seat suspense brought on by the impact of a family secret, youthful angst which adds more secrets and the realization that with all the challenges possibly hurled at one family the blood which bonds them is indeed stronger than the flood of other forces.
There are three (3) priority reasons to go see this play: First you will be fully entertained as the play is written, directed and delivered with comedic and dramatic flair. There is never a dull moment and you will want to pay attention to, and likely repeat the various quips, phrases and comedic spills from Brown herself who plays the grounded character of Mada May with a humour that leaves you the audience member with semi-permanent laugh lines. Second, you will be impressed with the level of talent previously hidden amidst our community. You must support! You must support!! You must support!!!
This play is highly recommended for the entire family, as it will help you to identify ways to address some concerns faced by our youth and to perhaps open up the lines of conversation for those sitting on the fence about revealing secrets. You come away knowing that family should and can be a safe space when led by love.
