Loud Whispers PlayCome Sunday, May 1, 2016, theatre lovers in Nigeria will be hosted to a  superb  theatrical experience in the genre-crossing performance of Ali Baba in a new play called Loud Whispers. Ali Baba will be supported by a 20-man cast, featuring other talented thespians such as Patrick Diabuah, Paul Alomona, Tony Okuyeme, Tony Offiong, and Joy Ogbekene.

‘Loud Whispers’ is an adaption of Joseph Edgar’s collection of humorous satires celebrating the Nigerian spirit. Edgar’s book has elicited so much laughter and attention through its acerbic but comical banters on topical issues. Interspersed with music and dance, the satirical comedy drama is laced with humour as it depicts the various experiences of the Ali Okiemute (played by Ali Baba) family and is a representation of the typical Nigerian family’s journey through the past and present economic dispensations.

It is a story of wit and directness, touching on the prevalent issues that shape our resolve to keep the unified Nigeria dream alive for the future generations against all odds.

The play is produced by popular broadcaster, Olisa Adibua, Shina Peller of Quilox and Mofoluwake Edgar, and adapted and directed by the veteran thespian, scriptwriter and Artistic Director behind Quebic 4 Productions, William Benson. William has successfully directed many critically acclaimed plays including The Sisters, Trials of Oba Ovonramwen, The Meeting, Yoruba Romance, and Private Lies, amongst others.

AIICO, AXA Mansard, Bank of Industry, Uber, Rain Oil, and Quilox are sponsors of this maiden edition.

Loud Whispers – the Play holds on the 1st of May, 2016 at the Agip Recital Hall, MUSON Centre, Lagos.
There are three shows: 1pm, 3pm & 6pm (Command Performance). Tickets are available at Terra Kulture and online at http://naijaticketshop.com/details.php?id=1752

The play is proudly brought to theatre lovers by Katunga Media, a leading African marketing communications agency.
