Maanomaa, My Brother
A Co-Production between Blue Bird Theatre Collective Production and Canadian Stage
Co-created by Tawiah M'Carthy, Brad Cook, and Anne-Marie Donovan
When childhood friends Kwame and Will reunite in Ghana for the funeral of a loved one, they realize just how much has changed since the events that separated them 25 years earlier.
As they struggle with the urge to keep stories from the past buried and the desire to connect, resurfaced memories set them on a journey to discover a truth that neither of them expected. Blending together styles of West African and Canadian theatre, Maanomaa mixes myth with reality, and the past with the present.
