A play titled “Thank God for Idiot”, would be premiered at the National Theatre in Accra on September 22 and 28, 2014.
The thrilling and must-watch hilarious stage play is by Globe Productions, in partnership with Graphic Showbiz and National Theatre, and supported by Alomo bitters, the Authentic African Herbal Bitters.
This was contained in a statement issued and signed by Latif Abubakar, Writer and Producer of the play and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra.
Mr Abubakar said these days, quality entertainment, apart from the usual musical concerts, seems to be rare, and that, the play is welcoming news when other forms of entertainment are offered.
Giving a brief about the play, Mr Abubakar said imagine a young couple who are living extravagantly because the man has inherited his late brother’s property, but despite all they have, the marriage is on the rocks.
“Expressing their emotions towards each other is one big problem. One midnight, in the midst of a very heated argument, they had a visitor. Who is this visitor, is it the Ghost of his late brother? What is the purpose of the visit at that ungodly hour? Will this visit be good or bad news to the couple?” he added.
The play is Latif Abubakar’s fifth foray into the field of stage drama. He wrote Romantic Nonsense, You May Kiss the Corpse and the critically acclaimed Gallery of Comedies and The Second Coming of Nkrumah, one of the greatest hilarious and historic plays ever produced in Ghana.
