"Jean and Dinah" offers you an insight into a country that does not only exist as palm trees and white beaches. The paly offers an inside perspective on a culture that has to deal with poverty and social problems. 'Jean and Dinah' - the two heroines - are two Jamettes that lead and live a fight against colonialism and history. Carnival, Trinidad's most important event of the year, functions as a frame for the drama. In Trinidad Tony Hall's drama is considered to be one of the most important dramas in contemporary writing. Whoever wants to get to know Trinidad and its people should put the Baedeker (travelling guide) aside and read this play.

The context of the play commands Caribbean, but especially Trinidadian, jamette history - all those who live below the diameter of respectable society. Badjohns such as Mastife, Batonier and Hannibal, and legendary women of the streets such as Alice Sugar and Boadicea (Bodi) are invoked as part of its natural landscape. Creole language is also interestingly utilized, commanding calypso as poetic and literary referential points along with Shakespeare and the Romantics.
