Voyage of No Return


  • Playwright

    Brian Campbell 

  • Setting

    Set on the Caribbean island of Montserrat.

  • Synopsis

    A story of love and passion as Irish and African cultures embrace against a background of racism, and simmering slave rebellion. The Emerald Isle of the Caribbean has placenames rich in Irish heritage, and its people carry Irish surnames which point to a history touched by Irish settlement. But all is not as it seems... St Patrick’s Day celebrations reveal the tensions between the Irish overseers and plantation owners and the slaves.
