Omi Mouna: Or, My Fantastic Encounter With My Great Grandmother

Omi Mouna is the beautifully heartfelt, poignant and playful semi-autobiographical tale of Mohsen El Gharbi’s voyage from Montreal to Tunisia to meet his paternal great-grandmother and to retrace his family’s turbulent legacy. In its original French version, Omi Mouna toured extensively throughout Québec and New Brunswick. Infinithéâtre is proud to produce the English-language premiere of this compelling tragicomic tale by a highly charismatic performer.
