A fable of love and death is hitting the stage at Warsaw Federal Incline Theater this week.

Cincinnati Landmark Productions and Tri-Health present Once On This Island at the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater (801 Matson Place Cincinnati), starting Jun 6 and running through Jul 1.

Ti Moune, a peasant girl, falls in love with a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, Daniel. Unbeknownst to her, the pompous gods of the island make a bet over which is stronger, love or death, the stakes being Ti Moune’s life. When Daniel returns to his people, Ti Moune is shunned because of her lowly status. Her determination and capacity to love is not enough to win Daniel’s heart, and Ti Moune pays the ultimate price. Winner of the 1995 Olivier Award in Londo…n for Best New Musical, this show features exciting island-flavored songs, including “Waiting for Life”, “One Small Girl”, “The Human Heart” and “Why We Tell the Story”.
