Celebrate Jamaica’s 50th Year of Independence

Mamma Decemba – Directed by Merlina Rich

Mamma Decemba written by the award-winning Nigel Moffatt is a bittersweet play about an older Jamaican woman living in England who finds herself widowed, jobless, and deserted by her children. Her attempts to cope involving hauntingly honest, sometimes humorous and often painful reflections on her past, raising larger questions for all of us about the nature of life-long relationships

Mamma December is directed by Merlina Rich who founded a not-for-profit organization, Banana Boat Productions in 1996. Ms. Rich believes “Caribbean culture is a rich and multicolored palette of expressions, experiences, and lifestyles that has been woefully underexposed in the realm of truly meaningful theater.”

Banana Boat Productions has produced a number of plays in a variety of venues and boroughs. Some of our productions have been in collaboration with other theatre companies. Main stage productions include Nine to Five Government Style, The New Hardware Store, Have Mouth Will Travel, All I’ve Got, Pretty Papers, Good Morning Miss Millie and Mamma Decemba.
