When their divided cultures keep them apart, Ti Moune is guided by powerful island gods on a remarkable quest to reunite with the man who has captured her heart. The play is adapted from the book by Lynn Ahrens. Lyrics were written by Ahrens, music by Stephen Flaherty and directed by EPCC Instructor, Keith Townsend.
