Ti-Jean and His Brothers

By Derek Walcott

Directed by David Furumoto

Through his allegorical narrative of Ti-Jeanís tÍte-ŗ-tÍte with a Devil hunting for humanity, Caribbean playwright and scholar Derek Walcott challenges his audiences in this moving West Indian folk parable. Through this simultaneously fanciful and politically provocative play, Walcott engages with issues of imperialism, colonialism, and oppression as the tricked becomes the trickster and the persecuted thwarts the persecutor. After almost 50 years, this thought-provoking dramatic interpretation of Afro-Caribbean folk traditions continues to challenge audiences to consider the power of stories from the margins.
