For the first time ever, top Jamaican theatre actors Shebada and Delcita are hitting the US hard with a 'Double Dose' of comedic entertainment Thanksgiving weekend - together offering patrons two explosive plays for one price, also known as '2 for 1'.

Theatregoers in the Tri-state area should brace themselves for an infectious weekend of Jamaican comedy as promoters Irish and Chin offer more bang for the buck with stagings of Double Dose (with Shebada) and The Plumber (with Delcita) in Hartford, Connecticut, at Weaver High School on Saturday, November 26, and Double Dose (Shebada) and Ova Mi Dead Body (Delcita) at Evander Childs High School in Bronx, New York, on Sunday, November 27. Adding to the gut-wrenching humour of Shebada and Delcita, will be all-star casts, with favourites like Bad Boy Trevor and Jookie Jam - among others.

"This year was a very good year for our theatre productions," says Garfield 'Chin' Bourne of Irish and Chin in a release sent to THE STAR. "Giving our patrons two shows for one price is our way of thanking them for their support."

With '2 for 1' being the rave in Jamaica, sometimes attracting more than 8,000 patrons in one setting, there is no doubt that the US debut of the concept will be a hit. Theatregoers will get to experience a full night of immense laughter, big fun and entertainment with 2 for 1 in Hartford and the Bronx, for one discounted price. Each market will feature early warm and intense musical vibes by DJ Roy and four hours for the scheduled plays, including one intermission.

Irish and Chin expanded their brand to encompass theatre a few years ago, attracting thousands of patrons to their stagings. Known for selling out auditoriums, Irish and Chin's ultimate goal has been to provide customers with first-class Caribbean entertainment. The introduction of '2 for 1' in the US with powerhouse stagings of top plays with leading actors, further carries out Irish and Chin's mission.
