Playwright Latif Abubakar’s Globe Productions Limited is set to thrill the public with their festive season series of plays dubbed ‘best of plays’ beginning December 29, 2021, to January 8, 2022.
The shows will come off at 4:00pm and 8:00pm on each day at the GNAT Hall in Accra.
Tickets for the play are on sale at GH¢80.00 single and GH¢150.00 double and are available at the Airport and Community 11 Shell, Baatsona Total, Joy FM, Koala, and also via the shortcode *447*1092# on all networks.
For theatre on the cruise where ‘Thank God for idiots’ would be staged on the Dodi Princess amidst a cruise on the Volta lake at Akosombo, tickets are being sold at GH¢450.00 single and GH¢800.00 double.
Having been on top and staged jaw-dropping plays in the last decade, the playwright said, the growing interest of people and the positive impact of Globe Productions’ stage plays have been a motivation to continue churning out hilarious and educative plays.
Starting with ‘Judas and Delilah’ on December 29 and 30, 2021, the next will be ‘Something must kill a man’ which will be staged on 1st, 2nd and 3rd January, 2022 and end with ‘Thank God for idiots’ on 7th and 8th January, 2022.
‘Judas and Delilah’ tells a story of a nurse who is obsessed with a doctor and a watchman who is obsessed with the nurse, while something must kill a man tells the story of Mr. Attah who after handing over his company to his son, came back to set him up with a charming damsel.
‘Thank God for Idiots’ is about a young couple whose marriage is on the verge of collapse. In the midst of a very heated argument one midnight, they had a visitor.
As a theatre company focused on theatre for development, Globe Productions has to its credit 15 plays that have been performed 67 times across the country to an audience base of about 40,000 making it the fastest-growing theatre company in Ghana with the widest coverage.
Its CEO/Playwright, Mr. Abubakar gained international recognition via an interview on BBC World Service on the topic: “Resurgence of Theatre in Africa”.
Some written and produced works by Mr. Abubakar include “I can’t think far”; a non-violence campaign towards the 2016 election which was sponsored by Star-Ghana, UK Aid, DANIDA and the European Union.
Also, “Saint and Sinners” focused on illegal mining[galamsey] and was sponsored by WaterAid Ghana and the Media Coalition Against Galamsey.
Another work that made a social impact was “Men don die,” a road safety campaign sponsored by the National Road Safety Commission.
The ‘best of plays’ is in partnership with Joy Entertainment and the Graphic News App, with support from The Royal Senchi, Tampico, TCL Ghana Limited and The Makers Electronics Company Ltd.
