The Caribbean American Repertory Theatre presents Trevor Rhone’s SMILE ORANGE, directed by Jeffrey Anderson-Gunter is playing at the Chabot College Performing Arts Center on November 18, 2006.
After a hugely successful showing in Los Angeles, Rhone’s impudently amusing satire, is brought to the San Francisco Bay Area by award winning director Jeffrey Anderson-Gunter. SMILE ORANGE is a rollicking slapstick satire that ranks with the funniest and most heartwarming comedies of the decade.
SMILE ORANGE pokes fun at the tourist trade in Jamaica, and makes fun of both the visitors and native Jamaicans. The story focuses on Ringo, the slick waiter, and super stud, who has used his wit and charm to change his lowly position into a profitable one. As Ringo trains a busboy in the art of picking up single, women tourists he tells him “A Blackman who can’t play a part will starve to death.” SMILE ORANGE will make you howl with laughter, but in much of the laughter there is pain.
A delightfully playful, hilarious comedy, that will entertain the whole family, SMILE ORANGE, is the Caribbean American Repertory Theatre, West’s second offering for 2006.
