Desmond Dennis looks forward to 10th year in commercial theatre

Award-winning actor Desmond Dennis has landed his next major role in Anancy & Pinocchio, joining some of Jamaica’s seasoned veterans in the play, which is directed by Patrick Brown, co-owner of Jambiz International Limited.

Ushering in his tenth year in commercial theatre locally in 2023, the actor has been in a reflective mood. “I’m not sure how persons generally do it [celebrate a milestone year in their career], but as it approaches, I’ve been looking closer at my journey … where I started and where it is taking me … using the time for reflection,” Dennis told The Sunday Gleaner.

He added: “The opportunity to be part of a new production comes at the appointed time because while I have worked with most directors in the space, I have never had a chance to work with Patrick Brown. I’m delighted to be among such stalwarts and crowd favourites as Glen ‘Titus’ Campbell, Courtney Wilson, and Sharee Elise, players I’ve never had a pleasure of sharing a stage with prior to now.”
