Black Theatre Workshop presents How Black Mothers Say I Love You by Trey Anthony

Black Theatre Workshop presents How Black Mothers Say I Love You by Trey Anthony

Directed by Tamara Brown

February 27 – March 16, 2019 – Montreal Premiere; Centaur Theatre
March 19-20, 2019 – Brampton Premiere; Rose Theatre

About the play:
Starting a better life in Canada 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.
