Date: December, Friday December 12th, 2014

Written & Directed by Abiodun Kassim

The play, which centres around three friends with distinct personality disorders but who seem clearly united by their love for music, is an exciting play with gripping themes.
For the three young men, the loyalty of one is soon questioned by the two others when a twist in the tale sees them falling in love with the same girl.
While they think she has come to save them from themselves, she takes them on as a project to fill a void in her life and what happens when her demons emerge from the past she is trying to escape from is a play that would keep any class or size of audience spell bound for its duration.
That is the conundrum at the heart of this funny, reflective and exhilarating Band Aid this time with a “Christmasy” twist.
Starring veteran stage actor, Toyin Oshinaike, as well as rising but commendable actors like Patrick Diabuah, Tuke Morgan, Adesua Etomi, Tosin Oluwadare, Demi Olubanwo, Tosin Gregory, Ranti Ihimoyan, John Paul Ochei.
– Ticket for the play are available at Muson Centre, Jazz Hole, Orpheus Music Shop.
