This play is a co-production with the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh. 

Featuring Anni Domingo and Cleo Sylvestre.

Gentle, soft-spoken Cynthia moves into a nursing home to share a room with the cantankerous and domineering Myrtle. But before Cynthia can settle in, a power struggle takes place as the women battle over the right to each other’s pasts and memories.

The Last Bloom blurs the line between truth and fantasy and explores the idea of the right to reshape one’s past.

In the world of Theatre, Amba Chevannes is no ‘triple threat’. She doesn’t act, dance or sing (professionally). Instead, she writes. In the world of Theatre, Amba Chevannes is simply a ‘threat’.

Trained as a Dramatic Writer (NYU), her style ranges from drama to comedy to the absurd. Her stories often take us into the hidden spaces of our societies and invite us, through laughter and tears, to face our own humanity.

Amba is a Jamaican freelance writer and script analyst and teaches part-time at Edna Manley College for the Visual and Performing Arts and The University of the West Indies.
