Includes an audio CD reading of Bella's Gate Boy by the author.
Published here for the first time, Bellas Gate Boy is a hilarious, autobiographical account of the playwright's drama-filled path from being a "country boy," the youngest of twenty-three children in the rural environment of Bellas Gate, to becoming the pre-eminent Jamaican dramatist of his generation. It tells a story of struggle with race prejudice and the quest for identity. In this warm, intimate and compelling one-man drama, Rhone takes the audience through his personal struggles and experiences from Jamaica, to England and North America that have inspired his award-winning socially charged writing.
Trevor Rhone is the recipient of many awards including Jamaica's 2003 Prime Minster's Award for Lifetime Achievement, and the USA NBT 2003 Living Legend Award (Film).
