Summary In 2012 Jamaica celebrates the 50th anniversary of Independence. Mixed Company is a collection of three of the finest early Jamaicantheatrical works, written for the most part before the dawn ofIndependence. Written in 1954 (The Creatures by Cicely Waite-Smith), 1960 (Bedwardby Louis Marriott) and 1970 (Maskarade by Sylvia Wynter), the playsare examples of works conceived with a Jamaican audience in mind, a Jamaican audience conscious of the melting pot in which it lived. Each offers a unique perspective on the spirit of a people whoheld on to traditional beliefs and customs in the face of coloni
