Earlier this year in June, theatre and art lovers were given a treat as Bobo Omotayo’s best-seller ‘London Life Lagos Living’ went from page to stage, at the Taruwa Festival of Performing Arts. The play, which held at Terra Kulture on June 6, 2013, was hilarious and had the audience in stitches the entire time. It came to an end with a standing ovation, rave reviews and an autograph signing session by the author, Bobo Omotayo.
After a successful first outing and popular demand, London Life Lagos Living comes alive on stage a second time and showing three times on Saturday, December 21, 2013 at Terra Kulture, Victoria Island, Lagos, with the Taruwa Festival Convener, Lydia Idakula Sobogun, as Producer, and Kenneth Uphopho as Director, featuring a stellar cast including Writer/actor/producer Abiodun Kassim, Radio personality/actor Omoye Uzamere, and Ayesha Shaba of Hollywood’s Spirited Actor and Tinsel.
The producer, Lydia Idakula Sobogun says, “I’m thrilled about the changes that we’ve made to this edition of the play. There are some additions to the cast and exciting new scenes. We’re looking forward to giving you a great show!”
LONDON LIFE, LAGOS LIVING, The collection of short Lagos-life observations turned ‘tales’, is the extraordinary journey of a western trained mind trying to navigate his way through the Lagos metropolis. Published in November 2011, the book has received rave reviews, and the Author Bobo Omotayo says, “The incredible thing about theatrical productions is they give literature a whole new perspective. I am very excited about the possibilities of this unique representation of my work”.
