Love and Ecstasy

Written by Gail Nyoka

Directed by Terrence Spivey

From Ireland to Barbados, to Trinidad and to England, trauma passes through five generations of women. Each one denies her truth at her own cost and suffers in her own way. Each searches for love. The narrator has reached a crisis. Like her great-great grandmother, she is a seer. It is at this point of crisis that the narrator discovers her hidden abilities. Is she descending into madness? Do her ancestors have anything to teach her? And is she able to listen?
