Defending the Cavemen is a blend of one stand comedy and “therapy session” among both sexes to discover where differences and misunderstanding does begins and how each one can resolve or understand it. Unlike other gender based play or concept, Caveman aims to discuss the view of males, at the same time remains sympathetic to the concerns of the females. It shows that men do have emotional side but not as obvious and similar to what women does.
I had the chance to see Trinidad performed before the actual performance on May 6-21, doing a one man act talking lot of things about the male gender and shifting to female concerns sometime is really hard. It really needs of too much strength and guts to do it knowing that the audience is a mixture of both genders which others may react negatively or positively in the lines he will be saying on stage. As for the set, it is truly a caveman set up; the rock made like sofa chair, refrigerator, television and spear which really adds to the atmosphere of the play as accessories in the “cave” of the cavemen.
