From the makers of “The Love of Mamavi, The Barber and the Apprentice and Chains and Shackles” comes another drama piece designed to shock, enlighten and initiate discourse : HOMELESS, written by Nii Ayi Solomon and directed by Woelinam Kurt Dziewornu-Norvor and ably assisted by Cygishmel Da`Cherub.
Homeless puts the life of the poor, abandoned, destitute and the rejected into perspective; shedding light on their suffering, their pain and what they go through just to survive. In the play, destiny pairs Abu and John in a most fascinating way. They both have very interesting ideas on how to survive in the Ga streets and are willing to do anything to make it.
In their search for the proverbial Golden Fleece, they encounter other characters whose stories are not only riveting but sad. In the end, everyone decides to go back home but what awaits their return is a matter of concern as they wonder if they will be accepted after picking up new and unacceptable habits from the streets.
The play, set in every alley, street, home and cranny of Accra and filled with humour which has a tendency of keeping an audience glued to their seat, is hefty with a message that cannot be overlooked as it’s meant to educate, shock, entertain and initiate discourse.
It comes off at Alliance Française Accra on Friday 12th April, 2019, at 8:00 pm, and stars Nancy Bonnah, William Odartey Lamptey, Jeffery Nanor, Awushie Dzidey, Kennedy Arthur, Andrews Adjovu, Dorcas Glover and a few more others.
