Two Comedies Take To The Stage In Abuja
Sheraton Hotel, Abuja will bubble with life as two stage comedies, Ahmed Yerima’s ‘The Lottery Ticket’ and Jerry Alagbaoso’s Specks in Our Eyes’ will be staged there on Sunday, December 13, 2015.
The stage plays, produced by Mosaic Theatre Production and Cruise Entertainment, will start by 4 pm and will both be repeated as from 7pm at the Ladi Kwali Convention Centre of the Sheraton Abuja Hotel.
Featuring some of Nigeria’s best Theatre Artistes like Patrick Diabuah, Omololu Sodiya, Odera Orji, Kelvin-Mary Peters and a host of others, the plays would be directed by Agozie Ugwu and produced by Ekene Ngwu, the duo who featured Ramsey Nouah in Ola Rotimi’s ‘Our Husband Has Gone Mad Again in Abuja, August 2015.
The crew also includes the multitalented British council trained and certified lighting and set designer – Richie Umezinwa as the technical director.
The Lottery Ticket’, with its hilarious scenes and twists, discusses the greed and gullibility of man, while ‘Specks in Our Eyes’, a satirical comedy, explores the ills of the society with an aim to correct them by encouraging everyone to look inwards.
It is in line with the commitment to explore the efficacy of theatre as a veritable tool for the stimulation of attitudinal change in our society that Mosaic Theatre Production and Cruise Entertainment continue to lead the charge to enshrine theatre in the corporate culture of Abuja.
