Topical fare for NIFCA finals

Social Share

THE DIGICEL NIFCA Performing Arts Theatre Final on Sunday night was mostly topical, informative and entertaining.

A capacity audience at the Frank Collymore Hall heard 14 pieces, with solid performances by the Barbados Youth Service, Yolanda Holder, Iyanla Jordan, Akeem Chandler-Prescod and Shanice Wharton putting them in the running for NIFCA gold.

The Birds, The Bees And HIV, written by Winston Farrell and directed by Michelle Barrow, was excellently done by the Barbados Youth Service. The group took the stage for about 25 minutes using real life scenarios of peer pressure, broken mother-daughter relationships and ignorance to get their message across about the spread of HIV.  (TTY)
