My Heart is the Drum

April 29–May 22, 2016
Everett Performing Arts Center

This inspiring new musical is the story of a young woman from a small village in Ghana and the lengths she will go to realize her dreams. It seems that life is conspiring against Efua Kuti as her family farm struggles and her education is denied in order to make room for a sudden arranged marriage. But when she risks everything to set off for the big city, the dangers are beyond anything Efua could have dared to imagine. Full of driving African rhythms and rich with spirit, this new musical is a celebration of strength and courage that will take your breath away.
