Venue: Amaturo Theater – The Broward Center for the Performing Arts
Based on Debra Ehrhardt’s dramatic real life escape from revolution-torn Jamaica in the 1970s, this powerful one-woman show takes audiences along on her roller coaster ride to America. Overcoming poverty, prison time, rape and near death in a dangerous caper aided by the unwitting help of an infatuated CIA agent, Ehrhardt’s gripping ordeal provides a glimpse into what many endure on the path to fulfilling their lifelong dream of a better life in America. “A terrific story,” says LA WEEKLY, “suspenseful enough for a thriller, and deliciously funny.” Jamaica, Farewell will make you laugh, cry and applaud the persistence of the human spirit.
