“Man Does Lie,” the popular comedy play by Alex Bruno, is making its appearance for the first time in Canada.
It debuts in Toronto on August 19.
The play is based on one man’s greed and overgrown passion for the opposite sex. It deals with the sins of infidelity and covetousness committed by a loose older man (Lolo) who is on a rampage for young blood.
Lolo’s deceptive ways eventually catch up with him at a time and place he never imagined and the 90 minute play captures the last dramatic unraveling of Lolo’s foolish games.
The play which features an all star cast of characters from the Caribbean has been staged for the past two years in diverse places such as Dominica, Hollywood Fl., Atlanta Georgia, Houston Texas, and St. Thomas.
The Characters are Lolo, played by Emile ‘Pa Ben’ Serrant, Adala played by Margaret ‘Celsa’ Gustave, Kareen Joseph is Mewo, Farah is played by Kimarah Laurent, Nyamekye Daniel plays Fern with Alex Bruno as Lashing.
The play is suited for the general audience and organizers say it is absolutely entertaining; it is the kind of play that can bring the peoples of the Caribbean together and it is expected that the public turns out to this onetime event.
“Man does Lie” is performed by Téyat Powal International, a cultural group which was formed in Florida in 2001, and enjoys international linkages. The group has performed in Dominica, Antigua, St. Kitts/Nevis, Barbados, Atlanta, New York, Cameroon (Africa) and Hollywood, Fl.
“Man Does Lie” is presented by One Caribbean Culture, in association with the Dominica Houston Association, with support from the St. Lucia Houston Association. The play is the company’s 13th Production.
This event is produced by One Caribbean Culture in association with Nature Isles Entertainment with assistance from Commonwealth of Dominica, Ontario Association (CDOA).
