Imprisoned in Canada for committing a violent crime, a young man from Ghana tells his cellmates a story on the eve of his release. Although there is great risk in sharing his tale, he must tell it to be truly free. 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. Our 40th anniversary season sees Obaaberima’s long-awaited return to the Buddies stage.

Audiences will remember Tawiah from the Buddies / Saga Collectif hit production Black Boys, which premiered as part of our 2016-17 Season and returned in 2018 after a national tour. Obaaberima was the first project to be developed through the Buddies Residency Program – launching a platform for new work development that has gone on to produce eight mainstage productions in the past six years.
