Better Angels

What do you do when you feel trapped and alone? You could walk out the front door, but you’re even less uncertain of what lies beyond.

 

Akosua is a young woman late of Ghana who has come to Canada to work as a nanny for Leila and Greg Tate in their beautiful Toronto home.

The couple insist she is a member of their family, but when they increasingly deny her pay she comes to a chilling realization: she is a prisoner.

Written by Andrea Scott and featuring Akosua Amo-Adem, Sascha Cole, Peyson Rock and David Christo, the play premiered at Summerworks in 2015 and was originally directed by Nigel Shawn Williams.
