The Cottesloe Theatre will be putting on a production of Errol John's play, "Moon On A Rainbow Shawl".

Old Mack's noisy yard in Trinidad is a cacophony of calypso beats and hymn tunes, where neighbours drink, fight and pass judgment, all whilst looking out for each other and trying to build a better life. But Ephraim is determined, and nothing is going to stop him escaping his dead-end job for a nw life in England -- not even the beautiful Rosa.

Once“Once”, at the Phoenix Theatre – 16th March 2013 to 4th July 2015
