(CNS): There will be a special and final showing of the comedy show “Rundown” at the Harquail Theatre this Friday, 10 June, to help former cast member George Jones, who underwent a kidney transplant close to three months ago. Net proceeds from the production will be given to Jones, a music composer and well-known local performer who has faced many years of medical challenges. A survivor of colon cancer, he was on dialysis for four years due to chronic kidney failure but he beat the odds and received a kidney transplant. 

Jones is currently living in a temporary residence in Florida, close to the hospital where he received the transplant, according to the Cayman National Cultural Foundation, which produces “Rundown”.

Funds raised from the special production of the show will be donated to a special Go Fund Me webpage created on Jones’ behalf. Money raised from the production and other donors will aid his recovery and cover basic daily living, medical and miscellaneous expenses.

“Rundown”, now in its 24th year, highlights the latest happenings in the Cayman Islands and features a talented cast of performers mimicking the newsmakers of the day.

Doors will open at 7pm and the show will start at 8pm.  Tickets cost of $25 for adults, $15 for seniors and children under the age of 12.

Call 949-5477 to reserve tickets or purchase online at here or from the Harquail Theatre box office in Grand Cayman.
