35 CENTS

WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY PAUL ANTHONY MORRIS ·                     A POLITICAL SATIRE · BLUE ELEPHANT THEATRE · 2007

SYNOPSIS OF 35 CENTS

It’s election time on the romantic Caribbean Island of Jamaica however, the campaign has been completely overwhelmed by extreme apathy & disillusionment. 

Fatigued by the ever increasing levels of poverty, debt & trade injustice, a new student organisation called the 'No Confidence Movement' emerges in an attempt to lead the electorate on a national boycott of the general elections. With various bilateral and multinational interests now at stake, a U.S. led military invasion is initiated to neutralize growing support for the boycott.

It is from within this cauldron that the students of the 'No Confidence Movement' take us on a frenetic journey that will ultimately determine the political future of their island.

Morris and his cast set about it with great spirit, fluid, fast-and-loose theatre.
— Time Out
Morris does it in exuberant style. It works too because of the skilled, quick-shifting character creations by its fine cast of five.
— Review Gate
A versatile cast with some powerful, moving and comic performances.

THE MEETING

BY JEFF STETSON · FREEDOM & JUSTICE · WAREHOUSE THEATRE

SYNOPSIS OF THE MEETING 

DIRECTED BY PAUL ANTHONY MORRIS 2009

In the 1960’s African American’s had a common goal: an end to poverty and discrimination. 

Two passionate voices arose from the sea of protest and took centre stage to spur on the African American community. However, these were two conflicting ideologies - one immediate and provocative which embraced the ideals of an armed struggle to achieve their goal for self determination. The other sort to achieve its objectives through non violent demonstration, economic sanctions and the power of vote.

The subsequent tensions that arose between these two distinctive voices provided one of the most potent reference points for African American history, a history that has gone on to be defined as one of the greatest humanitarian struggles for freedom and justice in the 20th century. 

The Meeting is a fantastic and
informative play which is worthy of four stars.
— Theatre News
The Meeting is the sort of theatre which people - certainly young ones - should see so the lives two men gave for their beliefs and their people are never forgotten.
— Croydon Today
The Meeting asks some vital questions that remain horribly centre-stage.
