Seasoned storyteller, James Ebo Whyte, takes to the stage for the first time as a performer in a glorious 40-year career entailing masterminding premium theatre productions in Ghana.
On September 1, 2, 8, and 9, the renowned playwright, author, director, counsellor and motivational speaker and life coach serves a one man show which he simply describes as “a crazy ride” —and judging by his previous offerings, it will be nothing short of that.
Affectionately referred to as Uncle Ebo, the Roverman Productions CEO, who has written and directed nearly 40 top-notch pieces including ‘Dear God comma’, ‘Women on Fire’, ‘The Comeback’, ‘Special Delivery’ among others, the 63-year-old remains an influential name in the theatre space here, and has dished out quarterly plays since 2008.
The production house he heads, which ha performed to to nearly 40,000 patrons a year across the breadth of the country, including high-profile names across spheres in Ghana, marks 10 years this September, and it is in line with this that the playwright makes his historic stage debut.
Operating under the mantra “Be the Difference”, Uncle Ebo’s Roverman productions’ mission is also underlined by a fervent commitment to deliver “quality, fun, family friendly live theatre productions in Accra and other regional capitals.”
Uncle Ebo Whyte’s “Crazy Ride” comes off at the National Theatre, Accra.
