Tawiah M'Carthy

Imprisoned in Canada for committing a violent crime, a young man from Ghana tells his cellmates a story on the eve of his release. Through storytelling, dance, and live music, Obaaberima chronicles a young African-Canadian’s journey across continents, genders, races, and sexualities. Winner of the 2013 Dora Award for Outstanding Production, Obaaberima has played on stages across the country, garnering rave reviews from coast to coast.

As a performance it's a tour de force and more than earned M'Carthy the raucous ovation it received. As a play it's persuasive and touching.
