The powerful message delivered by the theatrical piece Looking Back at Sodom, which had its debut during Love Safely Week in February, will be shared with a wider audience when it opens to the public next month.
The play will be held on Saturday, April 2, and Sunday, April 3 at 7:00 p.m. at the Princess Margaret Secondary School, Six Roads, St. Philip.
Tourism Development Officer with the Ministry of Tourism, Madge Dalrymple, explained that the positive reception received following the play’s first showing, led to a decision to partner with the St. Philip HIV/AIDS Education Group and Constituency Councils of St. Philip to take the message further.
"Based on the response from the initial audience, the decision was taken to partner with a community group to take the play to the public and to reach a wider cross section of Barbadians.?? I hope people will come out to hear these important messages and I especially look forward to support from the St. Philip community," she said.
Performances are free to the public, however, patrons are asked to make a monetary or food stuff contribution to the AIDS Food Bank on the evening of the play.?? The coordinators advise parental guidance for viewing of the play, as the piece addresses many sensitive issues which may not be suitable for all ages.
