Excerpts from the screenplay How to Get Away With Horn will be featured at the National Drama Association’s (NDATT) Playwrights Workshop Trinbago (PWT) Monthly Readers Theatre Series (MRTS).
Held the first Wednesday of every month, the series will continue online in light of the precautionary measures implemented as a result of the covid19 pandemic, said a media release from the PTW.
The reading will take place via Zoom meeting only on May 5 at 7 pm.
The screenplay follows Nekeda as she explores a much-debated topic in the Caribbean, "horn," on her YouTube channel.
The playwright Veronique Francois says, “Learn how to get away with horn the right way from Nekeda as she teaches you her ten rules to cheat, while we observe the lives of three married couples. While researching for her video she learns a few tips, uncovers dirty secrets, and unexpectedly lands herself right in the middle of family drama.”
Francois is a playwright, director and teacher at Bishop's Centenary College. She has a wild imagination and began writing short stories and speeches from the age of ten, and has not stopped since. She started writing and directing plays in 2014 and is always looking for ways to improve her skills, the release said.
Francois has had multiple scripts read at the MRTS, including Dirty Laundry, Where Sarah Gone?, Who Cah Hear and the first episode of a TV series titled The Death of Me.
The PWT is inviting actors, playwrights, directors, producers and the public to join in on Zoom to listen to the reading and participate in the discussion to assist the playwrights in further development of the script.
