Carib Theatre company was founded in 1980 by Jamaican actors-directors Anton Phillips, and Yvonne Brewster. With Phillips as its artistic director, Carib Theatre produced the first two Black Theatre Seasons at the Arts Theatre in London's West End. Carib Theatre focused primarily on celebrating and developing high quality professional theatre by and for black people. Under Phillips direction, Carib Theatre's production of James Baldwin's 'The Amen Corner' was the first black produced and directed play to transfer to the West End of London. In addition to other major productions such as Derek Walcott's 'Remembrance' Carib Theatre also specialised in theatre in education and toured in schools across London.
