Ti-Jean and his Brothers help bring relief to Haiti

Derek Walcott

The Brooklyn College Department of Theater has had a wonderfully  busy spring semester this year.  The theater department’s most recent project has been the play entitled Ti-Jean and his Brothers directed by Laura Tesman.

The production was a B.A Performance and Fundraiser event in which all of the proceeds serve as a benefit to relief efforts in Haiti.

Ti-Jean and his Brothers is a story of  a mother and her three sons and their confrontation with the Devil. More specifically, each of the three sons leave home in order to face the devil and try to overcome the curse that has taken hold of their family.

The young talented actors in this play made audiences shiver with laughter, curiosity and deep thoughts.  The sounds and music of the Caribbean that were used as well as the lights and the simple props, captured the depth and meaning of this play.

The original play  Ti-Jean and his Brothers was written by Caribbean writer and artist Derek Walcott in 1958 and its morals are still relevant today.
