DRUM

PRESENTED BY Our Day and Omnibus Theatre
Thrown together by lives built far from home, two rising Ghanaian creatives grapple with success and identity.

“A civilization flourishes when men plant trees under which they themselves never sit.

What you need 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. 

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.
