Underbelly at the Edinburgh Fringe


“A civilization flourishes when men plant trees under which they themselves never sit. What you need to understand is, Ghana is home.”

As the afternoon sun hits London’s BBC Broadcasting House, photographer James Barnor encounters broadcaster Mike Eghan for the first time. Thrown together far from home, two rising Ghanaian creatives navigate their perception of identity, success, assimilation and home. 

Inspired by real events, this joyful and poignant play fuses storytelling, music and dance; capturing a unique snapshot of the swinging sixties.

DRUM premiered with a critically acclaimed sold-out run at Omnibus Theatre in 2022.
