What happens when idealism and pragmatism clash, and the future of a nation hangs in the balance?
Henry James, Bahamian Director of Cultural Affairs, gives a sensational
address to the United Nations General Assembly on the anniversary of the
abolition of the transatlantic slave trade, embarrassing Mallory King,
the Bahamian Prime Minister. King vows to take his revenge, and sets in
motion a plot to destroy James. The instrument of that destruction is
Delilah Lockhart, a young woman appointed to work closely with Henry
James as his Deputy Director of Cultural Affairs. But the plot
backfires, as many plots do.
Small Axe was written by Nicolette Bethel. It premiered in Shakespeare
in Paradise 2017 on October 2, and featured Jonico Pratt, Sekani Nash,
and Rukenya Demeritte-Nash.
