MAKES PHILADELPHIA PREMIERE
AT THE ANNENBERG CENTER ON JUNE 13
FOR TWO PERFORMANCES ONLY!
In honor of the first annual Immigrant Heritage month this June, Jamaica Cultural Alliance in association with Annenberg Center Live is excited to present the award-winning and internationally acclaimed play, FAREWELL JAMAICA, written and performed by Debra Ehrhardt and directed by Joel Zwick. Based on true life events, Ehrhardt chronicles her escape from revolution-torn Jamaica in the 1970’s to fulfill her dream of coming to America. It was when she working as a secretary and met a handsome CIA agent over a lunch break that she saw her chance. She began a dangerous adventure that only a single-minded driven teenager might pursue. She agreed to smuggle a million US dollars into the US to a mysterious person somewhere in Miami; the smitten agent became her unknowing accomplice. JAMAICA FAREWELL is Debra Erhardt’s third one-woman show. She is currently adapting it for the big screen. Performances are scheduled for Saturday June 13th at 5:30 pm and 8:00 pm. Tickets are available at AnnenbergCenter.org or by calling 215-898-3900. The Annenberg Center is located at 3680 Walnut Street.
