J.A. Story The Musical - The Historical Musical on the island of Jamaica
Due to popular demand J.A. Story returns for a limited run in October 2010. With a bigger and new cast new songs and dances this is a must see. The critically acclaimed J.A. Story serves as a reminder of what Jamaica has contributed to the world and how progressive a country the island really is.

This is a stage musical with an historical canvas. This is a Jamaica of a people fighting great adversity through the ages, this is a Jamaica of Maroon self determination, of Sam Sharp and Paul Bogle; of Marcus Garvey and Bob Marley. It's about the Jamaican Lance Corporal William James Gordon who was awarded the Victoria Cross back in 1892 and more, much more.

Over the years many international creative people have adopted Jamaica as their home, including the actor Errol Flynn, the dramatist Noel Coward, Welsh farmer son Henry Morgan and not forgetting Ian Fleming who would write all his 13 James Bond Novels at his home Golden Eye. This is their story as well.
