Once On This Island tells the story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who falls in love with a grand homme, Daniel Beauxhomme – a story of life, pain, love, grief, faith, and hope. In this story, four gods – Asaka: Mother of the Earth, Agwé: god of Water, Erulie: goddess of Love, and Papa Ge: demon of Death, rule an island known as the Jewel of the Antilles where poor peasants worship them. The peasants, “black as night”, live on one side of the island, and the grands hommes, lighter-skinned descendants of the original French planters and their slaves, live on the other. This collaborative production features actors from the Omaha theatre community and students from South High Magnet School.
