So from Audley Shaw's phone bill, Gully Bop and Amari's break-up to fat women becoming more confident, we have touched all those topics," Harris said. "The show is family friendly, even though it has a dancehall image in the way we dress and topics we make a part of our sketches. We try not to make content that adults cannot bring their children," Private Viewings Dat a Gwaan Jamaica's return is owed to the wide demand from local businesses and organisations that have requested private viewings. The six sketches incorporate music, dance, and comedy. Executing the various sketches requires that the actors and actresses are proficient at encapsulating the specific characters. "The chemistry is great, but we also have disciplined characters. For example, Maylynne as Rankin Pumpkin, she nails it. Chris plays Onstage's Winford Williams, and there are a lot more characters that we all had to make sure, physically, we could not only match, but execute," Harris said. Striking A Balance Harris and her colleagues have managed to balance personal lives and careers with projects like Dat a Gwaan Jamaica. Twenty-six-year-old Wilson will be sharing the stage with some of the actors for the first time and is delighted in the revue format, which is also new to him. "Dahlia has offered a good opportunity to work alongside these key industry figures. They provide good support on stage, and the energy is always at a high. It is just a vibrant group," Wilson said. "In terms of finding a balance, practice only takes a couple hours out of the weekend, and because we are all so passionate and proactive individuals in theatre, it makes it all the more worth it," he continued. Rehearsals are in the final week and current affairs that can be made into additional sketches for the revue are still being identified. "Part of time management for me is respecting everything I have to do. With writing the script, I always have a time frame and give directing the full attention it needs," Harris said. Previously, Dat a Gwaan Jamaica has partnered with charitable organisations to raise money. This time around, to assist persons trying to pay medical bills and school fees, the partners are the RJR Basic School and Lions Clubs.

Flag Up Scotland Jamaica launched a petition calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to create a formal bilateral partnership with Jamaica, making it a Priority Country for trade and international development as a means of acknowledging that trade with Jamaica has contributed significantly to the foundations of economic growth and prosperity in Scotland and recognising that Scotland should now seek to advance the prosperity of Jamaica. The petition has the support of Anne McLaughlin, MP for Glasgow North East and Sir Geoff Palmer, Jamaican Professor Emeritus at Heriot Watt University. Scotland has many links with Jamaica and these begin with Scottish prisoners of war from the Battle of Dunbar and the Jacobite Rebellions being exiled to Jamaica. Later many Scots came to make their fortunes in the slave economy. The consequence is that there is a greater frequency of Scottish surnames in Jamaica than in countries like Canada or New Zealand. A large number of place names in Jamaica are Scottish and include Glasgow, Kilmarnock, Elgin, Roxborough and Culloden. More recently in 1962, a Scottish missionary in Jamaica, William McGhie was responsible for the inclusion of the saltire in the Jamaican flag. The petition highlights that between 1760 and 1830 the Scottish economy grew from one of the weakest in Europe to becoming one of the most powerful. Profits were made from vast amounts of Jamaican sugar as the old sugar sheds that still exist in Greenock today testify. Other industries in Scotland profited in unexpected ways. The import of linen to clothe slaves in Jamaica increased tenfold between 1765 and 1795. Recent research has confirmed that Scottish slave ownership was higher than in any other part of the United Kingdom.
