Synopsis: Meetings is a deeply comic play about commerce, marriage and food. Hugh and Jean are married cash rich, time poor.

Business and careers are booming. Trinidad is in the wake of economic growth. However, something is bothering Hugh, maybe it’s the American tobacco company with its mysterious research and cheap cigarettes, or wife Jean who values business over people.

Elsa, a country girl and the new help. Elsa brings something else besides good cooking, something that disturbs Hugh’s soul and state of mind.

About The Author:  

New York Times: Mustapha Matura, Caribbean Playwright in London, Dies at 79.

Mustapha Matura often satirical plays spoke for an alienated West Indian population in postwar Britain and for the people he left behind in Trinidad and Tobago.

Mr. Matura gained attention early in his career with his satire “Play Mas,” which opened at the London Royal Court in 1974, making him the first playwright of color to have a play produced in London’s West End.

Graduating Seniors Should Expect to Forgo Spring Commencement
 
Consistent with CDC guidance for avoiding large gatherings, University administration has cancelled the Spring commencement ceremony. Spring graduates will receive their degree certificates via mail and will have the option to participate in a later ceremony to be scheduled.
 
“As the ongoing response effort to novel coronavirus puts the nation in uncharted territory, we have made difficult decisions in the interest of public safety,” said President Gallot. “Each semester we all look forward to celebrating the hard work of our students and faculty, so it is very disappointing for all of us to cancel commencement.”
 
More information on remote learning, campus departure, student support, and campus operations is forthcoming. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to stay informed on the developing situation by checking University email, text messages, and following official University social media handles.
