“A civilization flourishes when men plant trees under which they themselves never sit.
What you need to understand is, Ghana is home.”
As the afternoon sun hits BBC Broadcasting House in London, photographer James Barnor meets broadcaster Mike Eghan for the very first time. Thrown together by lives built far from home, the two rising Ghanaian creatives must manoeuvre through their perception of identity, success, assimilation and home.
This joyful and poignant fiction fuses storytelling, music and dance with archival material to capture a unique snapshot of London in the swinging sixties.
DRUM is a brand-new play from award-nominated writer Jacob Roberts Mensah (DEM TIMES, Our Day) and Sarah Amankwah (recent acting credits include Lion King, West End; Black Earth Rising, Netflix; Henry V, Shakespeare’s Globe) making her directorial debut.
Story Circle is our free storytelling programme, and the next term is inspired by DRUM! This October, join acclaimed writer, director and actor Nicole Acquah to unlock you boundless potential as storytellers.
