THEATRE: ‘The Wives’ on Stage this Week
PAWSTUDIOS, producers of the BRITISH COUNCIL Lagos Theatre Festival 2014 brings The Wives to stage – written by Professor Ahmed Yerima and directed by Kenneth Uphopho.
Four Women, a Family and a Funeral: The Wives returns to the stage this September full of mystery and intrigue.
This dark comedy pulls a twist which will keep you at the edge of your seat from beginning to end.
Cecilia, Angela, Tobi and Auntimi are four women trapped in a web of lies spun by their billionaire benefactor, Gbadegeshin. Accusations of murder, incest and inheritance fraud are rife between the women. This is further compounded by Gbadegeshin’s family insisting on upholding tradition.
Prof Ahmed Yerima’s twist on this beautifully woven tale of polygamy is witty, humorous and full of lessons for all.
Date: Saturday, September 6, 2014.
Show Times: 1:00pm, 4:00pm & 7:00pm.
Venue: TerraKulture, Plot 1376 Tiamiyu Savage Street, V/Island, Lagos.
