Lottery Ticket and Man Talk Woman Talk Hit The Stage At Ethnic Heritage Centre
Two playwrights, Ahmed Yerima and Ola Rotimi, will thrill theatre lovers this Christmas season with the staging of their plays at Ethnic Heritage Centre, Raymond Njoku Street, Ikoyi, Lagos.
Today, Sunday, December 20, 2015 by 6pm, Ahmed Yerima’s Lottery Ticket will be staged by Kininso Concepts Theatre. Yerima’s Lottery Ticket, directed by Joshua Alabi, shows the ‘Impermanence of the human nature’ when money is involved. For some people, its food, while for some, its women. Lottery Ticket gives a detailed answer to the question – if you received an alert of a magical N1 million in your account, would you return it to the owner? Did you say YES? Wait until it happens before you truly respond to the question. It is said that every human has a devil hidden inside of him and something reveals the original us.
Watch as the struggle for another man’s sweat and wealth suddenly become things to cause dispute. Mama Lizi and Landlord are always at loggerheads, Lizi and Danger are in love, Yellow Fever is killing himself under the sun; Sergeant is ranting and quoting the law. Something led to a serious conflict. All because of money? Where does this leave Baba Tailor whose sickness is plentier than Nigeria’s debts? Lottery Ticket answers all your questions and does to you what we call Oga, laff your belle comot joo!!!
ALSO, B/rated Production’s performance of Ola Rotimi’s Man Talk Woman Talk which started yesterday, Saturday, December 19, will run again next Saturday, December 26 also at Ethnic Heritage Centre, 35A Raymond Njoku Str, off Awolowo Road Ikoyi. Time is 6pm.
It is B/rated Production’s maiden outing, and it rings gender discourse to the front burner with her production in Rotimi’s quintessential comedy, Man Talk, Woman Talk. It is produced and directed by Bimbo Olorunmola and stars Seun Kentebe, Omotunde Sogunle, Austine Onuoha, Opeyemi Dada and Nero Abigail.
