LAGOS â€” A NEW stage play, Yoruba Romance, starring among others, Kate Henshaw-Nuttal and Yemi Adeyemi â€˜Suaraâ€™ designed to disabuse the nationâ€™s tribal prejudices is due for premiere on Saturday, at the Muson Centre.
Written and directed by Mr Tyronne Terrence of Rosewood Inc. The play is sponsored by Onga seasoning, a product of
PromasidorÂ Nigeria Limited, makers of Cowbell Milk and other consumables.
At a press briefing, yesterday, Mr. Terrence said the play, which is an adaptation of a Marriage Proposal, the 17th century Russian play by Anton Chekhov,Â is a hilarious comedy about the age-old mating ritual between man and woman.
According to him, â€œthe play employs the use of different kinds of humour to explore some of the more deep-seated prejudices we have concerning inter-tribal relationships.
