Ehrhardt also stars in the one-woman show, which features direction by Wallace Norman. Opening night is scheduled for March 3 at 7 PM. Jamaica, Farewell, according to press notes, "tells the story of Debra Ehrhardt's journey in which she escapes revolution-torn Jamaica in the 1970s. Left to her own devices, she risked prison time, and even death in an attempt to pull off a daring and dangerous caper with the unwitting help of an infatuated American CIA agent to fulfill her lifelong dream of starting over in America."
Darren Lee Cole produces the work, which has previously been seen in Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Atlanta, Ft. Lauderdale, Tampa and Toronto.
Debra Ehrhardt, a native of Kingston, Jamaica, is also the author of Mango, Mango and Invisible Chairs. She is currently adapting Jamaica, Farewell for the screen.
Show times are Fridays at 8 PM, Saturdays at 3 PM and 8 PM and Sundays at 3 PM and 7 PM.
