GUEST POST: Let me remind you, Owen

2019-04-21T15:28:44+02:00Sun, 21st Apr '19, 15:28|

Owen Bonnici has written a piece about culture.  Or so he claims. In actual fact, it’s an advertising promo for Heritage Malta’s Heritage Passport and this is the only example of ‘culture’ he alludes to throughout, trumpeting its success with the words ‘let me remind you’. How could we forget when only two minutes ago, [...]

St Paul, or so the story goes, arrived in Malta in 60 AD. Blown by the shipwrecks of fate, it’s widely believed he brought Christianity to these shores.  Good job he arrived before he’d have been jeered off the island with taunts of ‘Go back home to your own country!’ We should be grateful, too, [...]

By Lizzie Eldridge On the afternoon of Tuesday 18th September 2018 –  two days after I’d spent the night protecting flowers and candles from a possible ruthless assault by the government-controlled forces of the Cleansing Services Department – I had the (mis)fortune to bump into Owen Bonnici, the Minister for Justice and Culture, on Republic [...]

A play by Lizzie Eldridge is premiering tonight as part of the Valletta 2018 program. The playwright is missing the premiere. Here she explains why. It’s a real privilege, you’d think, to have your work chosen as part of the programme for a European Capital of Culture.  And tonight, my play Friefet Bojod premieres at [...]
