Supported by SwiftThink LTD,Leah Foundation, Cool FM, Beat FM, Kingdom Africa and This Present House, “Ewuro” promises to be an event you will remember for a long time to come.

The play is directed by Joseph Ofili and Tim Godfrey, the President of Republic of Xtreme and Executive Producer of Ewuro has this to say “Having witnessed violence against my mother under the guise of culture and tradition when my dad passed on, the occurrence and recurrence of this ill has become endemic and what is even more troubling is the extent to which people go to cover it up, both the victims and the aggressors. We are therefore inspired to creatively address it and re-awaken our emotions to the true nature of the female experience in Nigeria in the hope that we will begin to engage in fruitful conversations about this issue and ultimately, change will begin.”

This story is delivered through intriguing hybrid of drama, music and dance. Then it follows the trajectory of each character’s peculiar emotional dilemma, leading to a thought provoking resolution, before climaxing in a high energy musical performance.

The first show will be at 1pm and the 2nd Show at 5pm (Red Carpet). Tickets are available online at www.ariiyatickets.com, Bruno’s place Ikeja City Mall and all Sweet Sensation Outlets. For more information on Ewuro, visit www.ewuro.org, twitter:   @ewuroNG
