Itan – Showing this Easter


If you missed your chance to watch the stage play Itan at the Lagos Theatre Festival a few weeks ago, listen up cos you’re in luck! Thespian Family Theatre & Productions will be showing Itan this Easter.

ÌTÀN (the Story), staged by THESPIAN Family Theatre & Productions, is an intriguing play laced with both cultural and contemporary dance and music, based on cross-generational conflicts prevalent in our modern day world.

‘Old school, die-hard’ village elder, Pa Latinwo, is shocked to realise that his lost and found ‘city roller-coaster’ grandson, Dee-Kay, wants no part in his world. Both rooted in their beliefs, they battle for supremacy for themselves and their generations. TIME (personified as Àsìkò) catches up with them and takes them on a journey into the past and future. They discover dark secrets that have been shrouded by the veil of time. Will this mediation save the day or tear both worlds further apart?

Time: 3 PM & 6 PM daily
Venue: AGIP Recital Hall, MUSON Centre, Onikan, Lagos

Ahmed Yerima’s ‘Tuti’ This Month at Terra Kulture


Ahmed Yerima’s Tuti returns to the stage this month at Terra Kulture.

Tuti’s visit to her father must be worth it. This time, she wants answers; answers to questions that have plagued her life for over 30 years…

She wants to know how her childhood hero turned into a villain as she confronts her father in this no-holds-barred conversation.

One of Professor Ahmed Yerima’s most outstanding plays, Tuti is a story of estrangement and redemption. There is more to every story than meets the eye, and this thought-provoking play invites us to consider those hidden whys that we might never be privy to.

Date: Sundays, 17, 24, 31 January 2016
Time: 3 PM & 6 PM
Venue: Terra Kulture, Tiamiyu Savage Street, Victoria Island, Lagos
Tickets: N3,500 (Regular), N,5000 (Premium Seats)
