KINGSTON MAYOR PUTS RED LIGHT ON TREVOR RHONE'S PLAYPosted: July 22, 2009
Theatre fans will be left without entertainment this weekend after Kingston Mayor Desmond Mckenzie placed a stop order on the venue for staging of smile orange by veteran playwright Trevor Rhone.
The Mayor says the cooperation is taking these steps because it has reached a breaking point, in terms of the refusal of persons operating places of amusement to obey the town and country planning regulations.
Mayor Desmond Mckenzie explains to Music News that The Theatre Place is a residence which was recently converted into a live theatre and has not obtained a place of amusement license. (CLIP)
Meanwhile, owner of The Theatre Place Pablo Hoilett who refused to be recorded says they have contacted the KSAC and make the necessary requirements.
He claims that the problem may be due to alleged complaints from his neighbor. Mr. Hoilett says he’s being treated like a criminal and there needs to be justice, as the double standards can no longer work.
Pablo Hoilett maintains that he has the necessary documents in his possession.
The play, Smile Orange by veteran playwright Trevor Rhone slated for a 10 show run is expected to start this Friday July 24 at The Theatre Place on 8 Haining Road, Kingston 5.
