a Caribbean audio drama by Kimberly Meyers and Onicia Muller
A near-fatal carjacking forces a young man with lots of potential but a shady private life to choose between doing the right thing by helping a girl he barely knows and keeping his brother’s secret. Sucker’s Garden is a relational drama surrounding the themes of loyalty through the admission and omission of details.
Sucker’s Garden is the brainchild of Kimberly Meyers. When she’s not modeling or competing in pageants, Kimberly works as a Public Relations Officer for the Minister of VROMI’s within the Government of Sint Maarten. Kimberly believes in using diverse communication channels and spreading positivity. Sucker’s Garden is the first of hopefully many creative writing projects. Kimberly has a BA in communication management and a MA in marketing management and public relations.
Onicia Muller is a Caribbean writer and comedian currently freezing her buns off in Chicago. A former crime reporter and children’s columnist, she’s found her happy place writing about women in entertainment and telling stories. If you’re into oversharing, read her weekly humor column Just Being Funny in The Daily Herald’s Weekender.
Onicia voiced Stacy, Yolanda, and Robert.
Storytelling is our Caribbean heritage. During hurricane season, the radio stations played Anansi tales. Pa Ben, a local performer, preserved our island’s tales through storytelling – little anecdotes of regular island life and histories not recorded in books. We read through the late hours of the night until our eyes became heavy. Even at that point, we didn’t want the stories to end. We marked the radio dial to quickly find our favorite stations. Sucker’s Garden is a suspenseful Caribbean radio drama for big kids.
Cast: Adrienne Brandyburg, D.A. Robin, Kyle Patrick, Ty Riggs, Ramiro Lynch, James Gordon, and Onicia Muller
