Casting has been announced for the world premiere of Jacob Roberts-Mensah’s DRUM at Omnibus Theatre.

Directed by Sarah Amankwah, the production opens on 9 September, previewing from 6 September, and runs until 25 September.

Making up the cast are Benjamin Sarpong-Broni (Mike Eghan) and Joshua Roberts-Mensah (James Barnor).

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

As the afternoon sun hits BBC Broadcasting House in London, photographer James Barnor meets broadcaster Mike Eghan for the very first time. Thrown together by lives built far from home, the two rising Ghanaian creatives must manoeuvre through their perception of identity, success, assimilation and home.

This joyful and poignant fiction fuses storytelling, music and dance with archival material to capture a unique snapshot of London in the swinging sixties.

The production is designed by Constance Villemot with lighting design by Marie Colahan.
