Joke Silva, Kate Henshaw, Jide Kosoko, And Ireti Doyle Take To The Stage For 'The Wives'

Posted in: , , ,

The Wives, a play written by Professor Ahmed Yerima, will be showing at the Muson Centre in Onikan, Lagos from the 9 - 11 October, 2014 with a cast including Joke Silva, Kate Henshaw, Jide Kosoko, Iretiola Doyle, Lala Akindoju and others.

The play focuses on the intriguing character called Chief Theophilus Gbadegeshin Olowookere, his sister and his three wives, Angela, Cecilia and Tobi.

“In The Wives, the question ‘can a man keep his most cherished secrets forever?’ is the central theme of the play. There lies a sordid little secret and no one wants to talk about it. It is a dark comedy rich in sensuality and scathing humour.”

The author, Ahmed Yerima was General Manager of the National Theatre of Nigeria and Artistic Director of National Troupe of Nigeria.

The play is presented by The Make it Happen Productions, the same company that produces Open Mic Theatre every other month and V-Monologues in May, 2013.

“We are excited about this play,” says Kemi Lala Akindoju, who is producer of the play and Creative Director of Make it Happen. “These are immensely talented members of cast and the audience is going to leave the play thoroughly entertained.”
