CCT Presents ‘Fireflies’
January 14 @ 8:00 pm
For the second production of its 38th season, Caribbean Community Theatre (CCT) presents “Fireflies,” a play by Donja R. Love. There are only three chances to catch this play over one weekend. Lionel Downer and Dr. Trisha Harris are featured in the play, which is directed by Jonelle-Alexis Jackson and Eileen Bishop Des Jardins.
The story: Somewhere in the Jim Crow South, the sky is on fire. Olivia’s fierce speechwriting is the true force behind her charismatic husband, Charles, and his successful movement, galvanizing people to march towards freedom. When four little girls are bombed in a church, Olivia and Charles’ marriage is threatened — as this tragedy and years of civil unrest leave Olivia believing that “this world ain’t no place to raise a colored child.”
Tickets are $20 for adults, with discounts for seniors, students and CCT members, and they may be purchased (for cash only) at the CCT box office prior to each show. This play is not recommended for children under age 16.
