About this show

In the village of Affreakah-Amirrorkah, no one questions that Akim is the one true, perfect beauty — not even her jealous classmates. But they'll be damned before they let her be the leading lady in this story. These frenemies jockey for their rank in a culture built on ideals forever out of reach. A decidedly contemporary riff on a West African fable, playwright Tori Sampson's explosive epic brims with live music and dance.
