LOUD WHISPERS 2016

Date: May `16
A superb theatrical experience in the genre-crossing performance of Ali Baba in a new play called Loud Whispers. Ali Baba supported by a 20-man cast, featuring other talented thespians such as Patrick Diabuah, Paul Alomona, Tony Okuyeme, Tony Offiong, and Joy Ogbekene.

‘Loud Whispers’ is an adaption of Joseph Edgar’s collection of humorous satires celebrating the Nigerian spirit. Edgar’s book has elicited so much laughter and attention through its acerbic but comical banters on topical issues. Interspersed with music and dance, the satirical comedy drama is laced with humour as it depicts the various experiences of the Ali Okiemute (played by Ali Baba) family and is a representation of the typical Nigerian family’s journey through the past and present economic dispensations.

It is a story of wit and directness, touching on the prevalent issues that shape our resolve to keep the unified Nigeria dream alive for the future generations against all odds and directed by the veteran thespian, scriptwriter and Artistic Director behind Quebic 4 Productions, William Benson. William has successfully directed many critically acclaimed plays including The Sisters, Trials of Oba Ovonramwen, The Meeting, Yoruba Romance, and Private Lies, amongst others.

I am amazed by the quality and the detail! Amazing work by the team!

Oke Oladosu.
