Four years ago, Devon Haughton’s play, Mi Get Mi Landed, chronicled the consequences of having secret agendas and not being honest with one’s partner. Starring renowned actress Terri Salmon, the play achieved critical acclaim.
Salmon is back in the play’s sequel, Mi Get Mi Landed II. Written by Haughton, the play picks up four years after the events of the original theatrical production. Ruth (Judy “Pye” Cox) used her life savings to start a nursing home and long-time family friend, Pu Pam Pam, arrives in need of a job. Tatti (Salmon) tries to return to Canada but loses her landed status at the airport. Coco, a Christian-minded landed immigrant who is the housekeeper at the nursing home, needs money to save her dying daughter. Barbabas weaves his conniving ways to destroy Ruth.
As the play progresses, Ruth battles mental health issues, Tatti fights to retain her landed immigrant status and Coco valiantly attempts to cope with her problems.
The various storylines of the characters are resolved in heart-wrenching, comedic and dramatic fashion. See it for yourself.
