Macmillan Caribbean Writers: Two Can Play & Other Plays


Two Can Playis a collection of plays by the most popular playwright in the West Indies featuring the never previously published BBC-commissioned radio play The Power, along with two frequently-staged favourites from the Rhone canon - Two Can Play and School’s Out. In the two-hander Two Can Play, Jim and Gloria try their wildest schemes to escape Kingston gun crime and establish residence in the United States. School’s Out examines the dysfunctional staff of a Jamaican school likely to turn any child into a juvenile delinquent. The Power tackles bullying, and how a young boy solves his problems by developing his self-confidence through a “magic” trick.
