This side-splitting comedy unravels the story of a cunning yet charming womaniser in the midst of a bitter divorce.

With his irresistible charisma, he continues to cast his seductive net, desperately hoping to find a new catch. But has he finally met his match? And why is he on his knees, begging for mercy?

Be prepared for unexpected twists and turns that will leave you roaring with laughter.

Any resemblance to real people and events is purely coincidental, or is it?

The play is directed by Richard Ragoobarsingh and Debra Boucaud Mason and is written by Ricardo Samuel with costuming by Sean Edwards and lighting by Celia Wells.

The talented ensemble cast includes Andrew Friday, Leslie Ann Lavine, Zo Mari Tanker, Kala Neehal, Jayron “Rawkus” Remy, and Benita Wilson.

Friday and Neehal have made their mark in the theatre and film industry with their exceptional talent and dedication to their craft, the release said.

Neehal, who plays Maria in the play, has shared the stage and screen with some of the most well-known names in theatre, including the late Raymond Choo Kong, Trinidad Theatre Workshop, NDATT, and The Baggasse Company. She was also part of the cast of the award-nominated film, Mightier Dan De Sun, at the 2020 TT Film Festival.

Friday, who plays Solomon in the production, has been praised for his captivating performances. He was lauded for his role as Annas Diaz in RS/RR’s Greedy People and his comic timing and presence in Dis Little Piggy is Tired, is leaving audiences in uncontrollable laughter, the release said.
