To celebrate the Nigerian independence, DreamPlayHouse in conjunction with Bogobiri House Ikoyi, presents the play, ‘Prison Chronicle’. the play which is written by Wole Oguntokun and directed by Kenneth Uphopho, will be performed at Bogobiri House, 9 Maitama Sule Street, Ikoyi on the 3rd, 9th and 16th of October by 3pm and 6pm daily.
“Prison Chronicles is a tale of four prisoners whose chaotic, sometimes hilarious and often absorbing life stories is a metaphor of the everyday events we encounter around us. In spite of their crimes, the prisoners share their smelly Cell Block B, (which is christened ‘Heart Break Hotel’ by the warder), with two unlikely guests – hopes and dreams. Prison Chronicles is beyond a story of suppression, it is a well crafted tale of hope, told through humor, gripping dialogue and song fused with memorable dance routines,” a synopsis of the play reads.
Tickets cost N2500 and N5000 respectively and are available at The Hub in The Palms Lekki, Bogobiri House, Cafelicious at 30 Opebi road Ikeja and Cackland Store, Shop D20 in Shoprite Surulere.
