"Jamaica, Farewell tells the story of Debra Ehrhardt's journey in which she escapes revolution-torn Jamaica in the 1970's.  Left to her own devices, she risked prison time, and even death in an attempt to pull off a daring and dangerous caper with the unwitting help of an infatuated American CIA agent to fulfill her lifelong dream of starting over in America," describe press notes.

The playing schedule for Jamaica, Farewell is as follows:  Fridays at 8PM, Saturdays at 3PM and 8PM and Sundays at 3PM and 7PM.  Tickets are $20 for previews and $25- $40 for all other performances.
