Glenville, Gale and galleries


Share post:

Going Home In Chains from Glenville Lovell uses themes of coerced displacement, which run through the stories as they shift between the Caribbean and America, seeping with wry comedy and mysticism.
For those in the United States and more specifically in New York City, please note the author will have a reading on March 23 at St Francis College located by 182 Remsen Street, (between Clinton & Court Streets), Brooklyn, New York 11201. For those of you who can’t make it, the book is available in paperback or ebook on
On March 31, in the exhibition called Light, the Bridgetown Gallery will be highlighting Diane Cardill.
Queen’s Park Gallery in Pelican Craft Village at Bagnall’s Point is running Barbadian Jewellery from March 18 to 31, while the Barbados Arts Council also at Pelican Craft Village has its Spring Group Show from March 19 to April 12.
For those who like movies with a difference, there’s the European Union Film Festival at the Errol Barrow Centre For Creative Imagination, which concludes by Sunday.
Soon, April will be here and so will the Gale Theatre of Barbados And London who’ll feature a one-act comedy at Frank Collymore Hall; The Lover, Pinter And The Piano directed by Rob Leyshon and produced by Melissa Simmonds.
Harold Pinter’s intriguing display of humour has been re-engineered for this production in a modern Caribbean setting, it will be preceded by a short celebration of Pinter’s life and loves; his poetry, his prose and, above all, his passionate relationship with Antonia Fraser.
Cast includes Howard Antony (British-based Barbadian); Patrick Foster (Barbadian); Caroline Gardiner (a Brit living in Barbados); Endy McKay (British) – the last two also appeared in The Memory Of Water production, also from Gale – and introducing Angelo Lascelles (Barbadian).
Harold Pinter was a Nobel Prize winning playwright and giant of contemporary theatre, a cricket loving political and peace activist who regularly visited Barbados!
The Lover, will be followed by twice award-winning jazz singer and pianist Miss Liane Carroll arriving directly from Ronnie Scott’s jazz club in London and performing the Great American Song Book with special Barbadian guests.
The season as usual will unite talent from Britain and Barbados in both halves of the show.
