Patrick Brown's stormy romantic comedy Hurricane Honeymoon blows into the Little Theatre, Tom Redcam Avenue, on Saturday, May 30, for a limited run.

It features a mix of young and up-and-coming Jamaican actors, along with the celebrated craft and experience of Glen 'Titus' Campbell.

Hurricane Honeymoon offers an extremely humorous look at marriage through the eyes of newlyweds John and Hilda Charm. The loving couple arrives at the Pleasure Beach Hotel with no suspicion of the deep secrets about to be exposed.

As skeletons start to emerge from both their closets, the shabby honeymoon suite soon becomes a war zone and, with a real hurricane closing in, the newlyweds find themselves embroiled in the honeymoon from hell.

Caught in this storm of emotions is Marley, the hotel's maintenance man, who finds himself having to act as referee, marriage counsellor, and even an unsuspecting participant in a love triangle.

The cast is rounded out by Akeem Mignott, Ricky Rowe (alternating with Glen Campbell) and Shantol Jackson, alternating with Natalee Cole. They take directions from Patrick Brown and Trevor Nairne.

After its gala opening on Saturday, May 30, Hurricane Honeymoon will play Wednesdays to Fridays, at 8 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays, at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m..

The gala opening will serve as a joint fund-raiser for the Kiwanis Club of Portmore and Sagicor EBC Pension Fund. Other entities have also secured performances to raise well-needed funds.

The show is slated to run until mid-June.
