How dangerous is disappointment? If people don’t get what they want in life, what should their response be? And if we get a portion of the dream, is that even worth celebrating? These are the questions Bahamian playwright Patrice Francis explores in her new play, “A Longing Fulfilled.” The family drama, set in Southeast Alabama, highlights 10-year old Eli Guthrie’s attempts to connect with his father, Jocquin ,whocovets his freedom above all. Thrown into the mix is Jocquin’s mastermind mother, played by Francis, who has her own fixed ideas of what he should do with his life and responsibilities. The play, directed by Erin T. Knowles, is the debut performance for Patrick Farquharson (Eli). Veteran actor Sean Nottage, Bruno Barr, SenobiaSabala and newcomer Tania Delmonte also perform. “A Longing Fulfilled” opens Friday, February 6th and runs for four nights including: Saturday, February 7th, and Friday and Saturday, February 13th and 14th at the DundasBlackbox Theatre. Tickets are $25 and can be reserved by calling 364–5234, 429-2432 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The play’sbox office at the Dundas opens Monday, February 2nd.
