The re-enactment, which traditionally takes place on the Piccadilly Greens, and heralds the start of Carnival revelry, will debut outside of the Carnival season, at midnight on August 23rd at the Queen’s Park Savannah. The play is written and directed by poet, playwright and cultural activist Eintou Pearl Springer, and performed by her family company Idakeda Ltd, in collaboration with the National Carnival Commission (NCC).
