The play opened at the Peace Memorial hall over the weekend and, according to Jackson, “it was a success thanks to Digicel”.

“Digicel was excellent in terms of getting the word out there to the public by doing among other things, sponsoring television and radio advertisements, while the company was also very supportive throughout the planning of the production”, said Jackson after Saturday (July 14) night’s showing.

He added, “Digicel is very dedicated to promoting culture and I am very happy to be able to work with Digicel”.

Jackson added that Tables will Turn boasts of being the first Caribbean play to open in a major theatre in the United States.

The Vincentian playwright, who lives in New York, said that he is looking forward to Digicel’s continued support, as he wants to bring his new play ‘Truth be Told’ to St Vincent and the Grenadines in 2013.

Marketing Manager at Digicel Juno DeRoche said that Digicel was very proud to be a part of Tables will Turn. She said that the play touches on various aspects of Vincentian life and culture and Digicel is very supportive of the positive expressions of the people in the countries in which they operate.

“We were glad that we were able to support the staging of this show”, said DeRoche.

Tables will Turn has been performed in Toronto, Montreal, Miami and Washington DC and is scheduled for the BVI, Tortola and London.
