Written by Sonia Farmer, A True and Exact History: a Reading is a poetic erasure of Richard Ligon's A True and Exact History of the Island of Barbadoes (1657), using the language at the core of this text to interrogate narrative as a device of cohesive history in the Caribbean. Reimagined as a dramatic reading using eleven speakers to represent the eleven separate parishes of the island, their voices inhabit and exchange threads of these dispersed narratives, ultimately calling into question what it means to write "a true and exact history" of anything.
