San Fernando – Encore Productions brings theater to the Naparima Bowl Auditorium on Saturday 25th August, 2018 at 8 pm. Wendell Etienne’s “Don’t Say a Word” is a one –night theatrical performance in aid of medical expenses for Melissa Mc Leod-Etienne. The cost of admission is $150 and ALL proceeds from this performance will be utilised to defray incurred medical costs for Mrs. Etienne.
On Friday 01st June 2018, Mrs. Melissa Mc Leod-Etienne suffered a ruptured aneurism and was rushed to the Medical Associates facility. Two CT scans done on the day revealed two aneurisms, one ruptured. The neurologist informed Mrs. Etienne that an emergency Cerebral Coiling Procedure was urgently required to save her life. This procedure was performed on Wednesday 06th June 2018 at the St. Clair Medical Facility and deemed a success; however, a follow up preventative procedure was performed on Thursday 09th August 2018.
Mrs. Etienne’s ordeal has left the family with mounting bills and in this regard, Encore Productions will be staging “Don’t Say a Word.” The performance serves two-fold as this dramatic piece looks at domestic abuse and what can be done in support of all the “Jane Does” in our world who cannot find the strength to fight back on their own.
Tickets are available at Nigel R Khan Booksellers, Gulf City Mall Branch only. For more information, call 299-7209.
Mrs. Etienne is the wife of Comedian, Actor, Writer, Director, Producer, Wendell Etienne.
