AFRICAN RENAISSANCE THEATRE IN COLLABORATION WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF THETARE ARTS, UNIVERSITY OF ABUJA, PRESENT SLEEP SEF NA WAHALA IN GWAGWALADA, ABUJA
I love performance arts and you remember I have been attending these stage plays in recent times, I caught up with Pope Egbuche, of A.R.T and he told me the "Sleep sef na wahala" that premiered at the Royal House of Gold Outing at Silverbird will be showing in University of Abuja.
The stage is set and the lights are blazing as African Renaissance Theatre (A.R.T.) opens the university tour of Sleep Sef Na Wahala, a play written by Africa Ukoh and directed by Williams Obasi. A.R.T has teamed up with Department Of Thetare Arts, University Of Abuja and an ensemble of ex-Uniabuja theatre arts graduate to bring this production to the campus.
Venue: Open Air Theatre, Mini Campus, Uniabuja and Faculty of Arts Auditorium, Permanent Site, Uniabuja
Date: On 21st and 22nd June 12, 2016.
Time: 6:30PM, daily.
ABOUT THE PLAY
Sleep sef na wahala is a comedy about Amaechi, a half-employed-and-half-unemployed part time worker and full time slave.
After a soul-crushing 72 hour work shift, all Amaechi wants is sleep. Unfortunately for Amaechi, his landlady wants him. His neighbour also wants him. The police want him. Even the friendly neighbourhood preacher wants him. Amaechi just wants sleep. But does sleep want Amaechi?
Shortlisted for the 2009 Abuja Writers’ Forum competition, this hilarious piece of theatre promises big laughs and great entertainment after the class’ wahala.
