About the play:
Starting a better life in a new land is a dream for many immigrants, but for Daphne the decision presents an unthinkable sacrifice. This is a story of separation and reconciliation infused with a bold original score that blends gospel, reggae and R&B with classical music. Playwright Trey Anthony, the first Black woman in Canada to have her own television series (da Kink in my Hair, based on the hit play of the same name), brings a new narrative to women’s issues and mother/daughter relationships.
