Media Invited to Cover and Photograph UVI’s Theater Production of ‘Heaven’

Entrance to UVI's St. Thomas Campus

Members of the media are invited to cover and photograph the dress rehearsal theatre production of “Heaven,” which first premiered 25 years ago at the University of the Virgin Islands Little Theatre. The play was produced by professor emeritus, now retired, Rosarie Harper.

The 25th Anniversary Production is written and directed by David Edgecombe, professor of Communications and Theatre at the University. The play was originally staged in 1991 at UVI Little Theater when it was directed by Dennis Parker. Wayne and Cynthia are putting everything on the line to win the prize money in a dance competition being held at a discothèque called Heaven. But two far more powerful men, Sam Drummonds and Tony Thompson, with his wife Dilys, are also in Heaven weaving their own plans for Cynthia. Deception, temptations, revelations, and pain run amok in Heaven, leaving none unscathed.
