Studio 180 IN DEVELOPMENT: Windrush (or Gone To See A Man About A Dog) By Marcel Stewart

February 28th, 2023 // 7:00pm


Studio 180 Theatre presents a work-in-progress reading of Marcel Stewart’s Windrush (or Gone To See A Man About A Dog), as part of its Studio 180 IN DEVELOPMENT program.


In this epic tale, a young Jamaican boy named Bwoi Son is left in the care of his grandfather after his parents leave for England. When a storm kills his grandfather, Bwoi Son and his younger siblings are forced to join their parents. Not wanting to leave, Bwoi Son embarks on a quest to find the River Mumma and her Golden Table to make a sacrifice in order to stay in Jamaica forever.


Grab a drink and join us for the opportunity to hear this work-in-development and participate in a conversation with the playwright afterwards.

The reading is free, but space is limited so we are requesting that folks register in advance here: https://studio180theatre.com/patrons/studio-series/
