We All Have Secrets… Some Kill
Provocative and engaging, One of Our Sons is Missing explores the lies we tell ourselves and the truths we hide from others when a Caribbean family is forced to confront dark secrets, prejudices and fear as the threat, and reality, of HIV/AIDS invades their world. It also examines the risks to which young people may be exposed in their relationships, often without being fully aware of the consequences.
When first staged in his native Trinidad, Godfrey Sealy’s work was considered at once groundbreaking and scandalous for dealing openly with the issues of sexuality and HIV/AIDS in the English-speaking Caribbean. Unfortunately, after almost two decades, the scandal is its narrative remains painfully contemporary.
