The Overnight Trial by 2 Masks & a Griot @2mgtheatre: A Stage Play of Essence, Grit and Tension

A former political prisoner from an unnamed past military era in Nigeria, had been raped by her captors, led by a sadistic doctor whose face she never saw. She has lived with the trauma for twenty years, buoyed up by her loving husband, Gbadebo Salami, a lawyer.

Her name is Wandoo Ate.

Years later, after the repressive regime has fallen and democracy is restored, Wandoo is on a visit with her husband to their country home, when he goes out and gets stuck on a lonely road at night. He is rescued by a good Samaritan, who brings him home.

Wandoo is certain she recognizes the voice and mannerism of the stranger, Dr. Hassana Danlami, as those of her rapist and the conductor of her torture years before under the dictatorship.
Holding him captive at gunpoint, she repeatedly attacks him and demands that he confess his crime. Her husband tries to stand by his wife and her claims, but he begins to doubt her story and sanity.

She forces her husband to represent her captive in a mock trial that she devises over the course of a night and a morning.

Wandoo extracts a confession under duress but audiences will find more evidence than not, that indeed, Dr. Danlami is guilty of the accusations she levels against him.

The story which is an adaptation of Ariel Dorfman's DEATH AND THE MAIDEN will be real on stage as "THE OVERNIGHT TRIAL" on Saturday Sept 30 and Sunday Oct. 1 by 2 Masks & a Griot at the British Council Abuja.
Actors include A-list pesonalities.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
