Ghost rules


Share post:

They brought?the house down with their humour and stage antics.
But the back story to their dramatic presentation, called the Hustler, was a serious one: crime against visitors has a devastating impact on the tourist industry and Barbados generally.
The actors behind the poignant message were members of Her Majesty’s Prisons Dodds during their contribution on the final night of the National Independence Festival Of Creative Arts performing arts semi-finals at Combermere School on Monday.
The skit revolved around a taxi-man who colluded with potential criminals to rob tourists travelling in his vehicle. But as the taxi-man spruced up his car to link with his friends for another “hit”, a civic-minded and austere-looking ghost, who was visible only to the taxi-man, entered the scene.
He said that he would be travelling with the driver to ensure he did not influence anyone to commit robbery.
It was a roller coaster of laughs as the taxi-man tried everything to shun his friends and stop them from talking about committing crime as the ghost sat behind him. (JS)
Here, a passenger alighting from the taxi after arranging with the driver to commit a crime as the ghost sits in the back.
