Jijo Quayson makes her theatrical debut with Osia, directed by her mentor Brad Fraser and dramaturged by Djanet Sears, Fraser, and, via Nightwood Theatre, Andrea Donaldson. Osia is the story of a Ghanaian family who struggles to find a better future. The youngest of the family, Harmosia, straddles two worlds- real and fantasy- as she tries to understand her surroundings. The play uses Ghanaian language, traditional music, storytelling and imagined folklore to weave together the story of Osia and the eccentric neighbours that surround her family.
At the Factory Theatre Mainspace.
