About the Author:

David Edgecombe is one of the Caribbean's leading playwrights. He began writing plays as a schoolboy and his work has been produced across the Caribbean, Canada and Africa. On leaving high school he founded the Montserrat Theatre Group (MTG) and later became its artistic director. In Canada he worked for several years with the Black Theatre Workshop of Montreal directing a number of award winning productions and staging several of his early plays. During this period he was commissioned to write a play based on the works of the celebrated novelist Austin Clarke, for Canada's participation in the Second World Festival of Arts and Culture (FESTAC) in Nigeria. He titled the play Strong Currents. The BBC broadcast another of his plays, Kirnon's Kingdom, worldwide. As Director of the Reichhold Center for the Arts, University of the Virgin Islands, Edgecombe started such programs as the Reichhold Caribbean Repertory Company and the Youth Moviemaking Workshop to provide expanded opportunities for artists and technicians working in the Caribbean. He is currently part of a developing network dedicated to promoting the works of artists, especially Caribbean artists. The network contends in the literary arts particularly, Caribbean artists have not had success commensurate with their talents, despite the three Caribbean artists who have already won Nobel prizes for their work - an amazing achievement by any measure.
