?It will start with a reception here in the theatre ground during which the book will be presented and George Gabb will be on hand to sign copies of that book for patrons attending that evening. That will be followed by a theatre presentation here at the Bliss, which will feature readings of his poetry by selected readers including Silvana Woods, Myrna Manzanares, Margaret Mckenzie and Rene Villanueva and the highlight of the evening will be the staging of a play which is written by George Gabb himself titled, ?Yellow Tail that will be presented by the Belize Theatre Company. Yellow Tail is one of George Gabb?s award winning plays which was first staged in Belize in the 1960?s so the theatre company has revived this play and has brought it to the stage as a new production for 2004.?
