Easter is long gone but thanks to the “Wizard of Law” we still remember the exciting holiday. On Sunday the 29th of April 2013 Davidhouse Multimedia Limited partnered with Amber11 Media & the Spruce Company to bring us a rascally theater rendition of Zulu Sofola‘s “The Wizard of Law”. The theatre project has been set to take place monthly showing plays that bring people together under comedy, suspense, thrills and drama.
As part of their novelty project this play tells a tale of Ramoni, an old lawyer who has fallen on hard times but tries nonetheless to impress his wife even though he is penniless. However, Rafiu, the crafty cloth- seller, takes advantage of Ramoni and pushes Ramoni’s further down into misfortune, leading to many more mishaps. Desperate Ramoni seeks a court case to redeem his loses. “The Wizard of Law” revolves around Ramoni’s many antics and the “wizardry” he deploys to get out of the debt.
