WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

One of the winners of the 2007 New York International Fringe Festival, Jamaica, Farewell is Debra Ehrhardt's true story of her life growing up in Jamaica and how she achieved her lifelong dream of coming to America by smuggling a million dollars in cash from Kingston, Jamaica, to Miami in exchange for a businessman's help in getting a visa. Debra studied acting with Katherine Kerr from Playwrights Horizons, and Suzanne Esper at the William Esper Studios in New York City. She received a 2007 Proclamation from the City of New York for Jamaica, Farewell for her "Outstanding Contribution to the Jamaican Community." A member of the Writer's Guild of America, Ms. Ehrhardt is currently adapting Jamaica, Farewell for the big screen.
