ONCE ON THIS ISLAND

August 18 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Based on the book “My Love, My Love” by Rosa Guy, ONCE ON THIS ISLAND tells the story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl, who rescues a wealthy boy from the other side of an island, Daniel, with whom she falls in love.

Unbeknownst to Ti Moune, the gods who preside over the island make a bet with one another over which is stronger, love or death, the stakes being Ti Moune’s life. When she pursues Daniel, who has returned to his people, Ti Moune is shunned because of her lowly status.

Her determination and capacity to love, though, is not enough to win Daniel’s heart. The gods turn Ti Moune into a tree that grows so strong and so tall, it breaks the wall that separates the societies and ultimately unites them.
