Better Angles by Andrea Scott

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.
