Once on this Island

When a society divides itself along lines of socioeconomic class, common ground can be hard to find. But to live apart is to go without all of life's opportunities: to learn new things, to uncover unexpected joys. In Once on This Island, a spirited girl from a peasant village in the French Antilles falls in love with an upper-class boy. This beautiful one-act musical -- full of Caribbean rhythms and songs both playful and poignant -- tells the story of how true love can transform us now, and for generations to come.
