The White Witch of Rose Hall - Broadway Studio Theatre
THE WHITE Witch of Rose Hall, by Simon James Collier, receives its world premiere at the Broadway Studio Theatre, where it runs from Wednesday, October 9 to Saturday, October 26, 2013.
The White Witch of Rose Hall is set in nineteenth-century West Indies, against a backdrop of the abolition of slavery, Voodoo, murder, betrayal and lust.
It is the legendary Jamaican story inspired by ‘true’ events of the time, of a love triangle between plantation owner Annie Palmer, her newly arrived English Book-Keeper Robert Rutherford and a young island girl named Millie. All of which leads to a brutal and terrifying end.
Presented by The Okai Collier Company Ltd and Evcol Entertainment, The White Witch of Rose Hall is directed and staged by Omar F. Okai and has set and costume design by David Shields, lighting by Ciaran Cunningham, music by Renell Shaw and graphics by Adam Dechanel.
The White Witch of Rose Hall comes from the creative team responsible for Purlie, The Remains of the Day, 1888, Collision and The Smilin’ State. Their production of The Last Ever Musical can be seen at the White Bear Theatre later this year.
Tickets: £14.50, £11 concession – available from the box office on 020 8690 0002 or online at www.broadwaytheatre.org.uk/.
