This Week’s Feature Story by Jan Critchley

National Theatre Live – Frankenstein! Thanks to Appleby and HLSCC we can now access world quality stage productions right here in the BVI. Don’t miss a single gem from this first selection of classics from the National Theatre Live – bringing the best of British theatre direct to the BVI. The first off the starting blocks, and very timely for Halloween is Mary Shelly’s monster hit, Frankenstein. Oscar winning director Danny Boyle directs this sensational production staring Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller. This thrilling gothic thriller will be showing at HLSCC’s auditorium from 7:30pm on Thursday, October 31st 2013. Other productions that are currently in the mix are Macbeth on 23rd November 2013, Habit of Art on 11th January 2014 and Hamlet on 25th January 2014. The ability to screen these productions is part of the National Theatre’s 50th anniversary celebrations. Frankenstein enjoyed a sell out at the National Theatre in 2011 and went on to win awards including the 2012 Olivier Award for best actor for both leads. Nadia Menezes, of Appleby who came up with the idea said, “After watching a number of performances screened at an Arts Center in New York, I was deter-

mined to bring this same concept to the BVI. HLSCC has been very supportive and receptive to having the Theatre Series stand alongside it’s own Annual Music Series which will bring a diverse offering of musical and dramatic performances.” Following this current series of NTL, there are more and different types of performances planned, ranging from Shakespeare to modern playrights, including entertainment aimed at younger/child audiences. Linette Baa of HLSCC said, “We hope that this is a start of something that can be continued with the on-going support of the community and we look forward to working with others to present to the BVI public as wide a range of entertainment arts as possible.” All performances will be screened at the HLSCC auditorium and are $15 in advance, $20 on the door and $10 for students and HLSCC staff. Tickets for Frankenstein and all other productions are available from the HLSCC Bookstore, LIME, House, The Watering Hole, Sunny Caribbee, Bella Blooms, UMI Fashions and on the door 15 minutes prior to performances. Check NTLBVI on Facebook for regular updates.

Ask Koren His Focus Is His Mother

Your personal E-therapist, is in the house!

Ask Koren

ter came up. When his mom’s health is no longer an issue, the focus will return to you and your prewedding plans. If you are enjoying your marital activities, the baby might still come and then you deal with that situation at that point and that is okay. What is not okay is making him feel guilty for taking care of his mom because you see that as neglecting you or complaining about something over which he has no control. What he needs from you right now is your love, your support and your understanding. He needs your strength when he is tired and he needs your understanding when he cannot give you all you need emotionally. In the meanwhile, find ways of balancing your activities so that you still spend quality time together. You have your whole lives together to celebrate your love so you are not losing anything. Instead you will be demonstrating that you love for better and for worse and that you are not a selfish woman, but a wife who cares about the needs of her husband. Send your questions confidentially to askkoren@live.com or via twitter at @korennorton

Dear Koren, Me and my husband have only been married for two years and we get along fine. His mom recently got sick and he asked me to bring her into the house with us. We live in a two bedroom house and before we got married, we had planned to have a baby after two years and use the second room as a nursery. Now his focus is his mother and I don’t want to be selfish, but do you think it is okay to remind him of our other plans? –Wife Dear Wife, It takes a very special man to care enough about his mother to want to take care of her when she is ill. I hope that you recognize that and praise him for it. I’m sure it is a bit of an inconvenience sometimes, but imagine that you both are giving that ill woman some sense of comfort to know that she is cared for. Sometimes we have no idea what life will throw at us and it could have been you or him that got ill. I do not think that now is the right time to bring up your plans. If he is concerned about the welfare of the only woman he has ever called mom, then clearly, he will not be able to focus on too much else. You need to give him some time. Also, I’m sure he has not forgotten the plans, it’s probably just that he had to put it on the backburner because a more urgent mat-

War Horse This 2011 drama, directed by Stephen Spielberg starts off on Dartmoor in 1914 when to his wife’s dismay, farmer Ted Narrocott (Peter Mullan) comes back from market with a thoroughbred horse rather than the plough horse that he was meant to buy. Immediately, his teenaged son, Albert (Jeremy Irvine) sets about training the horse to plough and before long the two become inseperable. The entire village comes out to watch as Albert tries to get Joey to plough the field, at first it is a complete failure but as it starts to rain and the water softens the ground, Albert tries once more and this time with success, a furrow is created and Ted goes out to plant the field. However, when the harvest fails due to a terrible storm, Narrocott has no choice but to sell Joey. World War I has been declared and Ted takes Joey to the vil-

By Arlena St. Hilaire

Close Encounter With the Crawling Kind Last week I had a run in with a lizard. Now this might sound funny to some but I despise lizards terribly. I know they are harmless and some say they are even good to have around as they eat the little moths etc but I can’t stand the little crawling creatures. Ok so here’s what happened. It was a lovely Monday morning and I was sitting at my desk working away on the Limin’ Times as we were about to go into our weekly planning meeting. From the corner of my eye I saw something run under the chairs we have in our waiting area. It happened so quickly that I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. A few moments later my other co-workers Claudia and Jan came out and sat down in the same waiting area so that we could have our meeting and plan for the next issue. As I turned my focus from the computer screen to get started with our meeting, there the little bugger was - just hanging out under the chairs looking right at me. I was ok with him once he stayed on that side of the room then I realized he was making a beeline over to where my desk was and I immediately started freaking out. Everyone jumped and wanted to know what happened so I proceeded to explain there was a lizard under the chair my co-worker Jan was sitting in. I know they though it was silly and funny that I could get that freaked out by what they describe as a cute little thing.

Limin’ Times Entertainment Guide

So right there in the middle of our meeting we had to stop everything and catch this lizard so we could set him free outside, as I was not able to function as long as I knew he was somewhere lurking in the shadows waiting to run across my foot. We moved the furniture trying to figure out where the little thing went and eventually saw him on the back of one of the chairs no doubt scared out of his mind. They both tried catching him but he was way to quick so the only logical way to get him outside was to take the chair out into the car park and shake him off. The mission was successful we could now continue with our meeting. They laughed a little but it was ok I could now work the calm assurance that there were no more creepy crawlers waiting to get me.

Pumping Heavy Iron With a woman sandwiched between them, the strong men were out in force at Long Bay Beach, Beef Island, during Oct 21 BVI Power Lifting, Weightlifting and Fitness Federation Strongman/Strongwoman competition. Federation vice president Steve George was satisfied with the overall event. “We had 15 athletes from different gyms and there has been an improvement in the standards with most of the guys benching over 300 lbs,” he noted. “That’s an improvement over past years.” The strongmen themselves marveled when Cliff Williams broke his own bench press National Record with a 440 lbs lift and Phillip Hines Jr., pulled up 600 lbs. “The aim roughly is about 470 lbs but by the end of next year, I want to be benching 500 lbs,” Williams said. “That’s my goal ultimately in life—at least 500 lbs bench press.” After a 335 lbs bench press, Hines Jr. said it didn’t go as he wanted but knew he had the dead lift in the bag. “Dead lift is my personal favorite exercise, I get the most benefits out of it, so I wanted to make sure I performed tops in that area,” said Hines Jr., who also squatted 385 lbs. “The 600 lbs is not my personal best but I just wanted to make sure I was in a different number category than the other lifters so I made sure I did something that no one else could do.” Walter Barrett, the sports newbie whose focus is on body building, said he got roped into the competition at the gym as the others encouraged him to participate. “I failed to lock out my arms properly in the bench

press but this whole thing is about form,” Barrett explained after maxing out at 385 lbs. “That’s the one thing you want everybody to know when you are doing these kinds of exercises – even when you’re going into the gym for your own personal recreation – form is paramount. You have to do it properly. You don’t want to damage yourself because that’s gong to end your whole career. I did good in the squat,” he said of his 515 lbs. “I didn’t expect to do 415 with the dead lift, but with the crowd behind and knowing Phil was going to break his own record, I knew I had to do something.” Cindy Lashley the lone woman in the competition said she was nervous. “It was the first time I was competing in this level of competition,” she said after benching 90 lbs while squatting and dead lifting 215 lbs respectively. “I love dead lifting, I practice it but next time, I’m coming hard in the bench.” Lashley encouraged women to participate in the sport. “They will not look like a man,” she said debunking a common myth. “Women develop muscles differently to men. It tones the body and you can get fit. I got involved because I wanted more toned legs and a toned butt and I have achieved both and more.” 13
