Your Handsome Captain

Local actor Sean Polite is Wilmot in this one-man play by Caribbean author Simone Swartz-Bart about a Haitian migrant worker on the island of Guadeloupe, whose tenuous link to his wife, Marie-Ange, is maintained by the exchange of cassette tapes, through which their poignant story is recounted. Polite is a veteran Town & Gown performer who has also been in UGA Theatre and Black Theatrical Ensemble productions. Freda Scott Giles directs, and Jennifer Lattimore provides the voice of Marie-Ange, while Haitian and Guadeloupian music add texture to the play. This is a Town & Gown Second Stage production with showtimes at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $5 at the door, and there are no reservations. A reception follows the opening night performance.
