About the Play
Once again the Lighthouse Foundation has partnered with the National HIV/AIDS Commission to co-produce “Simone’s Place”; a play written by Glenville Lovell and directed by Russell Watson.
This intriguing and thought provoking play discusses the issues of love and acceptance, while taking the audience on a journey through the lifestyle of a transgender person. Simone's Place is a dramatic presentation about a transgender searching for love, and acceptance in a society where wearing masks is the key to survival.
Glenville Lovell’s new play “Simone’s Place” gives us a glimpse into the life of Lady Simone. The play is set in her cabaret/bar/home, which plays hostess to 5 distinct personalities who find refuge there. Through a series of confessions and affirmations from Simone and each of these visitors, the play weaves themes of class, race and gender identity into a complex tapestry that transcends familiar definitions of these social markers.
