Highlights From The “Our Son The Minister” Stage Production
The first production of the Beeta Playwright Competition titled Our Son The Minister was quite successful selling out tickets to a mixed audience. The play starred talented performers including Patrick Diabuah, Diana Yekinni, Soibifaa Dokubo, Inna Erizia, Paul Morgan, Omololu Sodiya, Biodun Kassim and Oladapo Gbadamosi.
Its political satirical theme resonated with the watchers especially with national elections in view and its pertinence to Nigeria’s social-cultural adjustments. From the beginning, it ignites serious conversations on nationhood and how ultimately, family and community influences are significant.
A host of celebrities and dignitaries graced the performances with Mr. Steve Ayorinde, the Lagos State honorable commissioner of Culture in attendance at the finale performance on Sunday evening.
Beeta Universal Arts Foundation is having two more productions of this play by the end of the year and plans to make a call for submissions for the second edition of the Beeta Playwright Competition in the immediate future.
