Andrea ‘Delcita’ Wright plays the lead role and is expected to wow fans in The GTA with her hilariously contagious performance.
Lolita Entertainment will produce four performances in Toronto, Scarborough and Brampton all this weekend from July 15 through July 17, 2011.
The cast is lead by Andrea Wright (Delcita), Michael Nicholson (Milton), Trudy Bell (Melcita), Belinda Reid (Mildred), Stede Flash (Stamma) and Donald Thompson (Mr. Sharp).
According to pleased patrons in Jamaica, Guyana, New York and Connecticut, “Ova Mi Dead Body clocks in as being among the best plays that Stages Productions has produced to date”.
As Stages continues its tradition of telling a powerful story in an entertaining manner. Ova Mi Dead Body explores a number of typical, significant issues affecting Delcita’s family. These issues include single parenting, child abuse and the death of a loved one. The play tells the very comedic story of Delcita as a widow struggling to make ends meet after the death of her husband. Melcita is her teenage daughter, hidden from her father due to an unfavourable social situation. She suffers from an eye condition which if not treated will later lead to blindness and Delcita is adamant that Melcita’s sight must be saved. This motivates Delcita to leave Melcita with Milton and his common law wife (Mildred) as she jets off to New York in search of money for Melcita’s eye surgery. Upon her return to the island, she is confronted with the death of her husband and reality of not knowing whether he had made a will.
Melcita, having suffered abuse from Milton and cantankerous Mildred, is now left with the daunting prospect of a bleak financial outlook. While all this is happening Stamma, Delcita’s baby father, escapes from prison, having served two years for being innocently convicted of a serious crime. How will he take the news of Delcita marrying while he was in prison?
In her quest to find the will Delcita is presented with one that makes Milton the sole beneficiary. Fraud is apparent, however, Delcita eventually finds a will.
The question is; who is now in possession of the legal will?
The play is being presented in the GTA this weekend by Lolita Entertainment and DEVLOR Promotions.
