1997/98 LTM NATIONAL
At the centre of our story is Citronella (any resemblance
to one Cinderella is a sheer coincidence). She works in a garment
factory run by her stepmother (wicked of course) who rejoices
in the name of Bitter Jessie and who has two daughters, aptly
titled Bleachie and Tallair. They're very stoosh (extra you might
say). The factory is supervised by Red Eye (whose name tells you
something of his character doesn't it?). And there are the other
workers: the substantial Bevally, football loving Selvin, Miss
T, Miss Gatta, Muscles - the elusive baby father and Latisha whose
life revolves around a nightly dose of the popular serial "Nights
of Our Lives". The workers work and Bitter Jessie is bitter.
Red Eye casts his gravalicious eye everywhere.
Then along comes the Prince, whose dear departed Dad declares that Prince must be married by his 25th birthday and also sets down criteria for the future daughter-in-law. Spurred on by his fun-loving brothers, Count Bass (the Bashment King) and Earl Treble (the Monarch of Soca), Prince tries to find his bride.
He sponsors a series of crucial bashments. Soon enough, Prince sees a girl who he wants to have as his wife, but she doesn't stick around to find out. He tries again she is chased off by - guess who? The third time, with the connivance of Baggaraggs, an unusual spirit presence which resides in the factory, Citronella is helped to "get her man", with some assistance from Miss T, an older factory worker who has been chosen by the Baggaraggs to carry out their plan. Much credit must go also to a strange and wonderful invention which warns young girls to "wear yuh size".
Prince finds his bride, various others are teamed up and we proceed merrily to the next Bashment. All's well that ends well... of course.
