Contemporary performing arts company, Dream PlayHouse Theater in collaboration with Bogobiri House Ikoyi will present the mischievously hilarious play Prison Chronicles as a special independence project this October.
Written by widely acclaimed playwright Wole Oguntokun, Prison Chronicles is a tale of four prisoners whose chaotic, sometimes hilarious and often absorbing life stories is a metaphor of the everyday events we encounter around us. In spite of their crimes, the prisoners share their smelly Cell Block B, (which is christened ‘Heart Break Hotel’ by the warder), with two unlikely guests – hopes and dreams.
Daily conversation between the prisoners goes hand in hand with their cleaning chores, which they spice up with song, dance and delicacies from the warder’s wife, First Lady. Prison Chronicles is beyond a story of suppression, it is a well crafted tale of hope, told through humor, gripping dialogue and song fused with memorable dance routines.
The play is directed by ace thespian Kenneth Uphopho and produced by Dream PlayHouse’s creative bunch, Ifeanyi Dibia, Olusayo Asiwaju, Gloria Isitor, Mojereola Mustapha and Theo Nuekpe.
Prison Chronicles will be performed at Bogobiri House, 9 Maitama Sule Street, Ikoyi on the 3rd, 9th and 16th of October by 3pm and 6pm daily. Tickets cost N2500 and
N5000 respectively and are available at The Hub in The Palms Lekki, Bogobiri House, Cafelicious at 30 Opebi road Ikeja and Cackland Store, Shop D20 in Shoprite Surulere.
This special independence project is kindly supported by Ynaija, Zigma Communications, Orangeslice, Oltee Concepts, Makabis & Benet, The Hub, Cafelicious and Cackland Store.
