A Comedy Satire featuring Trinidad and Tobago's Traditional Carnival Characters quoting Shakespeare from Brown Cotton Theatre.

Jamette Carnival is a ragtag band of the dispossessed, the dastardly - the stickfighters, the prostitutes and...the nobody. Carnival mocks the privilege and excesses of the colonial elites through archetypal costumes or masques. This is protest through culture and fun, a heaving melange of interwoven European and African cultures become one.

Join King Jab Jab, Jab Molassie, Midnight Robber, Pierrot Grenade, and Jamette for Mas in your Ass!

We have a Plan!

Rated PG 13
