Simone’s Place
Playwright – Glenville Lovell
Director - Russell Watson
Producer - Barbados National HIV/AIDS Commission and Lighthouse Foundation

The play is set in the cabaret/home of Lady Simone, the middle class transgender proprietor of Simone’s Place. Here we meet five distinctly drawn characters each of who come to the bar with their own sense of social dislocation and vulnerability. Within the safety of the bar and emboldened by the emotional generosity of Simone, the confessions and affirmations of the play’s characters peal back the layers of race, class and gender norms in our society.
