One of Nigeria’s bubbliest cities, Lagos, will play host to the unveiling of Jude Idada’s 3Some, one of the fringe plays at the 2018 edition of the Lagos Theatre Festival.
We live in an Internet age, one in which the three-prong fork of marriage, desire and morality is in a constant flux. People become who they think people want them to be, act as though they are what they think they are, but are not. This is the age of smoke and mirrors, pretense and lies.
3Some mirrors this through the story it tells, of a mother struggling to save the crumbling marriage of her daughter in the course of which she stumbles on a dark secret. It is grave enough to threaten the relationship between herself, her daughter, her son-in-law and what she knows of herself.
Written and produced by Jude Idada, the finesse leaves us in no doubt as to why he is an AMAA award winning screenwriter, ANA award-winning playwright and two-time NLNG Nigeria Prize for literature finalist.
It is directed by the superbly creative Yemi Akintokun and starring the uber talented trio of Daniel Effiong, Uzor Osimkpa and Kemi Bickersteth.
The drama is billed to attract Government officials, students, celebrities, politicians, art connoisseurs and some special guests. The play opens on February 28 through to the 4th of March at the Amphitheatre, Freedom Park, 1 Hospital road, Marina Lagos. There would be one show per day at 7 PM.
