Caribbean poet and playwright Derek Walcott won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1992. By then, he had already founded the Boston Playwright’s Theatre.

In remembrance of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti and in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Boston Playwright’s Theatre, the Central Square Theater is performing Walcott’s “Ti-Jean & His Brothers.”

We speak with Walcott about the play and his career as a giant of literature.
