Talawa Theatre Company will re-stage artistic director Michael Buffong’s acclaimed National Theatre production of Errol John’s Moon on a Rainbow Shawl for a UK Tour in 2014.


In Port of Spain, Trinidad, the snatches of calypso music, hymn tunes and drums are interrupted by the raucous celebrations of troops returning from war. Here, neighbours drink, bawl, make love, look out for each other and crave a better life. But Ephraim is no dreamer and nothing, not even the seductive Rosa, is going to stop him escaping his dead-end job for a fresh start in England.
