DEMERARA GOLD is a solo play in two acts by Ingrid Griffith. It is a coming-of-age-story of the unconquerable spirit of a seven-year old girl left in the clutches of her two grandmothers in the Caribbean after her parents suddenly get visas to the USA. Ingrid cherishes a ring of Demerara gold given to her as a token of her parents promise to return. When she finally rejoins her parents in America five years later, she finds her father railing at "this blasted life," her mother wrestling with her disappointments and a life burdened by a family secret. Ingrid Griffith tells her own story in this dramatic solo performance featuring no less than eighteen characters. She ably weaves her country's history, her family's story, and the experience of migration and assimilation into timeless theatre magic.
