A Buddies in Bad Times Theatre production co-presented by Espace Libre and Black Theatre Workshop

Imprisoned in Canada for committing a violent crime, a young man from Ghana tells his cellmates a story on the eve of his release. Although there is great risk in sharing his tale, he must tell it to be truly free. Through storytelling, dance and live music, Tawiah Ben M’Carthy’s Obaaberima chronicles a young African-Canadian’s journey across continents, genders, races and sexualities.

Obaaberima originally premiered at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre (Toronto) in 2012. The play was commissioned and developed by Buddies in Bad Times through the Buddies Residency Program.

March 24-28, 2020
