Wat’s Dis All About is a Nigerian version of WOZA ALBERT- a South African play by Mbongeni Ngema, Percy Mtwa and Barney Simon. WOZA ALBERT was created under the siege of apartheid and became one of the most outstanding successes in the anti-apartheid crusade.
Its adaptation to the Nigerian socio-political situation is also based on the dazzling, hilarious and abstract idea of the coming of Jesus to Nigeria. The play presents a caricature of critical issues of individual freedom and morals in a spate of economic and political depression, showcasing a satirical commentary of the Nigerian people and their everyday desires.
The play which is part of activities for the Theatre Arise 2015, features Toyin Oshinaike, a recipient of the National Association of Nigerian Theatre Practitioners (NANTAP) award for outstanding contribution to the development of Theatre Arts in Nigeria (1995) and On Air personality Sinmileoluwa Hassan of Lagos Traffic Radio fame.
Wat’s Dis All About, is produced by Oxzygen Koncepts, a Nigerian based Theatre production company, and will be performed at Terra Kulture, located at Tiamiyu Savage street, Victoria Island, on the 29th of August, 2015 by 3pm and 6pm. Gate fee is 3000 Naira for adults and 1500 for students. Follow Oxzygen Koncepts on twitter at @oxzygenkoncepts
