Andrea ‘Delcita’ Wright is set to command the stage in a new production called “Court House Drama”.
 
“Court House Drama”, based loosely on true events, aims to critically examine the lives of hundreds of Jamaican children who remain neglected by the insufficient and unavailable resources in the broken educational system. Delcita Coldwater is a vibrant character who has been used as an experiment in a ‘slow learners’ program that the government put in place as an initiative to tackle the problem of learning disabilities within the classroom. Her tenure as a high school student spans a period of just over ten years, which has earned her the nickname, ‘School Mumma’. Delcita’s angst of wanting to finally graduate from high school and join the labor force will take the audience on a wild ride as we encounter supporting cast members such as Delcita’s father, Mass Zacky (Patrick Smith), Delcita’s favorite teacher Pamelia (Sherene Davis) and her tutor Diamond Francis (Dennis Titus). Delcita remains front and center, as she oftentimes finds herself in the position of having to dispense wisdom to the supposed wise.

Andrea “Delcita” Wright is one of the most powerful actresses to grace the stage in the Caribbean theatrical circuit. She has a very large following which has enabled her to become the first Jamaican female who can pull a crowd just as large as her male counterpart. Andrea Wright, in addition to being an actress, is also a trained teacher and a certified counselor. The character Delcita first appeared in in the 1996 play, ‘Mr Dweet Nice’. Delcita is portrayed as a loud, unattractive woman with rotted teeth and rural tendencies. Despite bearing these traits, Paul O. Beale’s character bears wisdom and is just to the point and hilarious in her delivery of witty punch lines. In addition to ‘Mus Mus Tail’ Delcita has appeared in other plays such as ‘Granny Rule’, ‘Di Driver’ where Wright starred alongside the popular Keith ‘Shebada’ Ramsay, ‘Money Worries’, ‘The Xtortionistz’, ‘The Plumber’, ‘Ova Mi Dead Body’, and  most recently, ‘The Politicians’.

 “Court House Drama” is marked to be the most hilarious play of the year, as Delcita and her cast mates deliver a powerful and stellar performance on stage. With the intention to expose the audience to the little discussed issue of learning disabilities in the Jamaican school system, the play will demonstrate how the unaddressed conditions adversely affect both children and adults, and how to obtain resources and develop coping strategies for the affected.

“Court House Drama” is brought to Hartford by J.W. Production and was written by Paul O. Beale. The showing will be held on Saturday, March 30th, 2013 at the Weaver High School in Hartford. Showtime is at 8pm. Tickets are now available for sale at Dunn’s River and Jahm-Ske Jamaican restaurants in Hartford, and also in New Haven. Entry for children under the age of 12 is free.
