Acclaimed “Miss Miles – the woman of the world” extends for three final nights in Port of Spain

Tony Hall’s acclaimed hit play featuring Cecilia Salazar – Miss Miles: the Woman of the World – returns to the historic Little Carib Theatre this Friday 2nd through Sunday 4th March, 2012.

Heralded by audiences and critics alike, the overwhelming public response bring Miss Miles back for 2012. The show has played to standing-room-only audiences and nightly standing ovations since premiering at the Little Carib on 20th October, 2011. Critics and audiences have celebrated the timeliness of this historic new play, which follows the life and tragic death of a true Trini patriot, activist and whistle-blower Gene Miles. Those who knew the dynamic and colourful Miles have praised 9-time Cacique Award winner Salazar for her sensitive and masterful portrayal of this Trinidadian heroine.

This tour-de-force one woman-play, Miss Miles – the Woman of the World is written and directed by veteran actor, playwright and director Hall and features Salazar as Trinidadian activist, singer, fashionista and public servant Gene Miles. The play focuses on the clash between Gene Miles’ conscience, religious faith, belief in truth and the rigid pre-set notions of the status quo. The story traces the 42 years of this attractive and intelligent woman's short life – from growing up in pre-independence, colonial, Roman Catholic Trinidad, attending St. Joseph’s Convent (Port of Spain), to the black power days of the early 1970’s, when a struggle to develop a new and just society gave rise to social transformation.

Partnering with Lordstreet Theatre for Miss Miles are producer Trevor Jadunath; Mauri “KeKere” Hall, who has written the music featured in the show; and an award-winning production crew, including producer Trevor Jadunath; Sean Leonard; Wendell Manwarren; Leslynne Matthews; Caroline Taylor; and Celia Wells. The show’s development was funded in part by the Arts Support Alliance (TASA), and is being sponsored by the Ministry of Arts & Multiculturalism; i95.5FM; First Citizens Bank; Carib; Jimmy Aboud; MEP Publishers (Media & Editorial Projects); and Absolutions Design Studio.

Miss Miles – The Woman of the World runs Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th March, 2012. Showtimes are 8:30pm on Friday and Saturday, and 6:30pm on Sunday.
