This show successfully premiered at the Horniman museum on 18th August 2006 as part of their CaribFest. In AshantiLand, in the old days, whenever mischief was done people would always say “if it isn’t one thing, if it isn’t two things, it’s ANANCY!”
Once upon a time. Anancy lived by the River, and on the other side of the river lived a lonely woman named Yaa. One day Yaa asked the river to give her a daughter. The river agreed to make Yaa’s wish come true but he gurgled ‘You shall indeed have a daughter, but she will not like to work she will only like to spend your money. However one day she will repay you.’
Meet Yaa’s daughter Adjwoa and follow her adventure as she meets a cat, a dog, a magic dove and of course that trickster Anancy. Suitable for reception, infants and juniors.
