Everyone loves a great show, and this is what ‘MISTRESS OF WHOLESOME’ is! Terra Kulture comes alive as this hilarious drama goes on stage in November.
In this one act comedy script, Moji, ‘the mistress’ surprises Adesuwa, ‘the wife’ of Lakunle, a prominent cardiologist in their home and holds her hostage using an antique musket. According to Moji, Lakunle has now fallen back in love with Adesuwa, as the couple has gotten closer in their efforts to adopt a baby. Moji is naturally ‘very put out’ by this and wants Adesuwa to convince Lakunle to fall back in love with his mistress so that things can be the same as they were for the past few years. Adesuwa, who is desperate for a baby sees Lakunle playing ‘the good and attentive husband’ as the only way that she will ever manage to adopt a child and naturally refuses.
Things get even more complicated in this one act comedy script when a gentleman from the adoption agency arrives to interview Lakunle and Adesuwa and to screen them as potential parents. When it turns out that Lakunle is actually locked in the trunk of Moji’s car across town, the two women must act fast to salvage a situation that is going downhill at a rate of knots!
The Mistress of Wholesome has been staged at the Little Theatre of Alexandria and at Under St. Marks in New York City. It is written by playwright Jacob Appel
