“Gabrielle Brooks is SUPERB Times ​

“An array of belting anthems, insistent rhythms and sly wit.” Evening Standard

“Soars and sizzles as it reinvents a familiar folk tale and salutes the power of collective storytelling.” WhatsonStage.com

“The sung-through score is HEARTSTOPPINGLY LUSH, a joyous musical tide that runs through the night like a river of glowing sound.” Timeout


A musical story of love, grief, faith and hope, Once On This Island tells of peasant girl Ti Moune, a boy called Daniel, and a union that prejudice forbids. Against the heat of the Caribbean sun and destruction of tropical storms, can Ti Moune settle the wager of the Gods, and prove that love is more powerful than death?
