THE subject of love has been explored by writers, playwrights and movie makers for ages yet the subject does not appear haggard. The subject of love always brings an exciting aspect to the fore, revealing its interesting shades.
On the 22nd and 23rd of May, at the National Theatre, playwright Latif Abubakar will be exploring this subject matter and the question of human pride in an original play WHAT CAN COME CAN COME. Here is a synopsis of this exciting and hilarious story to be staged:
‘Frank, the poor unemployed graduate grew up not knowing who his father was. Anytime he asked about his father, his mother said, “Your father is dead, not exactly dead but dead”.
Now an adult, Frank meets and falls in love with the daughter of Mr. Arthur, a man whose “Yentie Obiaa” attitude led to an early retirement and a drain on his family’s finances. Yet, Mr. Arthur doesn’t mind his kind: an egoistic proud man, if rich, to date his daughter rather than poor Frank.
Does Efua give in to the rich man and her dad’s pressure?
How does the story of Frank’s father being “DEAD NOT EXACTLY DEAD BUT DEAD” unfold?’
Latif Abubakar and Globe Production’s pedigree in staging plays is well known. With such quality and entertaining plays such as Thank God For Idiots, The Second Coming of Nkrumah and Don’t Dress for Christmas under their belt, those who watched any of these plays will attest to the excitement they offer.
What Can Come Can Come will feature actor Ecow Smith-Asante and Poka (2013 Ghana Most Beautiful winner) including rising comedians like Clement Ashitey (a.k.a Sarkodie) and Prince Amoabeng (a.k.a General Ntatia).
The play will be showing twice a day: 1st show at 4pm and 8pm respectively each day on the 22nd and 23rd of May, 2014 at the National Theatre.
Tickets can be purchased at Koala, Silver bird, Airport Shell, Tema Comm. 11 Shell, Citi FM, Joy FM, Baatsona Total for just GHS 50.
What Can Come Can Come is the perfect opportunity to relax after a busy working week.
Be there. Don’t be told about it.
