Jamaican Comedy finds its way to center stage

by Mona Shah

The Caribbean American Repertory theatre presents Trevor Rhone’s Smile Orange, directed by Jeffrey Anderson-Gunter, at the Chabot College Performing Arts Center on November 18.

Smile Orange is set to capture your heart with rollicking satire that pokes fun at the tourist trade in Jamaica, and makes fun of both the visitors and native Jamaicans. The setting of this social satire is the workings of a popular beach hotel. The story focuses on Ringo, the slick waiter and super stud, who uses his wit and charm to change his lowly position into a profitable one. Clueless tourists are the butt of most of his jokes. With the pulsating beat of Reggae music, this play will make you howl with laughter, but in much of the laughter there is pain.

The play’s director Jeffrey Anderson Gunter also stars as Ringo. His film and television credits include, the ABC series ‘Hudson Street’ with Tony Danza, ‘Marked for Death’ with Steven Seagal, and ‘Don’t be a Menace…’ with Shawn and Marlon Wayans.
