This production displayed a realistic depiction of class and discrimination in our society when it comes to sexual or other forms of physical and emotional abuse. However, the tables are turned here when the mask of an upper-class family's secret is unveiled for all to see through art form on stage. Audience members in New Jersey and New York City hailed that this production was one of the best stageplays that they have seen in a long time. Spectators enjoyed the reality of the contents with a splash of comic which soothed their emotions and feelings towards the events that unfolded on stage in a very bold yet theatrical manner. The cast included Terry-Ann Brown-Forsythe, Anthony Lopez, Nelson Njee, Yvette Sterling, Chriscia Robinson, Fernando FLores and Michelle K. Sydney. In light upper-middle class communities personal life stories are displayed and told in art form on stage. A brilliant piece and a definite must see!

Soon Dr. Huggins falls ill and he urgently needs a blood transfusion to save his life. However the only individual that has his matching blood type is a Laventille resident.

CAST IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE
The story "House ah Real Horrors" is based on a man and his daughter who lives a very poor lifestyle and they are both tired of the way in which things are going in their house. A few miles away lives a couple who are quite often up to no good and trouble is usually their main course of the day. Then there is the infamous "Gertrude" the bacchanalist who finds it difficult to mind her own business and last but not least "Donald the tease" who is always ready to get his dirty little hands on any and everything that comes his way. Fortunately for Moses and his daughter Candice good luck embarks its way in the home and life is much better until tragedy hits and the "House ah Real Horrors" begin to unfold and everyone is shocked at the outcome. This stage play is full of deception, greed, lies, comic, sorrow and confusion from beginning to end and it also possesses the capability of breathing life into this interesting yet realistic piece of art form.
