Twilight Caf┐ [The Last Breakfast]: "At last! A play about Caribbean men and women as we are NOW! Blood bursting through history, primal fears, contemporary gender wars, the unexamined cliches of masculinity lagging far behind the new feminine, the collapse of the performative in gender roles and formations now rendered obsolete - Tony Hall's Twilight Cafe is a brilliant and harrowing sexual embrace. The secularism of the post-post-modern, Orisha worship, soucouyants, hidden duennes and blue Carnival devils merge in a dance of no-death that cuts to the heart of the vast chasm of incomprehension between men and women." Ramabai Espinet Toronto August 9th, 2005 What Hall seems to be attempting here is a relief map of the Trinidadian psycho-social landscape . . . . The disconnectedness of the scenes and the almost tabula rasa quality each tableau presents the actors with could yield very interesting results . . ." Raymond RamcharitarTrinidad Express Wednesday June 26th, 2002 Flag Woman: It is the night before the carnival starts and Blind Miss B, an aging flag woman, is forced to confront, with reluctance, the life-long demons trapped in her head.
