“A man earns. However little, however nefariously, he earns.” Oba is holding on to the last threads of his old life and is determined to maintain what he can by any means necessary. Cake is a story about the things we use, how we are used, and what happens when we are all used up. Written by Governor General’s Award nominee DM St. Bernard the play is a stark and poetic musing on the nature of survival. Cake is a part of the 54ology: St. Bernard’s commitment to create one performance work drawn from each country in Africa. The show is written in reference to Niger’s uranium mining.
