DIASPORA, a full-length Action Theatrical Comedy, has its setting in a South Florida City Hall; the play ruptures the many fundamental inconsistencies in Caribbean societies, while highlighting their close Cultural and other similarities. A greater appreciation for self and Country (One Caribbean), is realized and good triumphs over evil at the end. The plot surrounds a group of Florida residents from the Caribbean “Diaspora”, a Sheriff and twin sisters who appear in the form of spirits.
