Following the two-time sold-out runs of the Nigerian adaptation of Ntozake Shange’s famous play “For Colored Girls”, Keke Hammond (CEO/Founder of Rue14 Studios) returns this holiday season with an original, contemporary stage play – ‘High’ which tackles the issues surrounding substance abuse amongst teenagers in a social media-obsessed world.
‘High’ tells the story of a group of teenage friends on holiday from their separate boarding schools. Even though they grew up together, they are at completely different places in their lives. When one of them suffers a drug overdose, it causes a major problem within the clique, forcing their parents to get involved and face the truth about their children and about themselves.
Written by Osang Abang and directed by Kenneth Uphopho, ‘High’ features a wonderful cast which includes Najite Dede, Akah Nnani, Lami Phillips, Abayomi Alvin, Paul Adams, Chris Iheuwa, Bunmi Sogade, Philips Chima, Genoveva Umeh and more. Making her debut as a producer on this production is actor Ade Laoye who is no stranger to the theatre. The production runs from Thursday, December 27th – Saturday, December 29th at Shell Hall, MUSON Center with performances at 2 pm and 6 pm daily. This show is not suitable for children under 10 years old. ‘High’ is proudly supported by BellaNaija, STV, Rhythm 93.7, City 105.1FM, Flytime, Union Bank, Savvie, House of Tara, FIRS and The KG Concierge.
