The National Theatre in Accra will on November 9 come alive as thousands of people will troop in to watch Nii Commey's latest play 'Potholes'.
The award-winning Playwright, Director and Executive Producer, Nii Commey will climax the celebration of a decade of authentic storytelling with his latest stage play, “Potholes” at the National Theatre come November 9, 2019.
"Potholes" is set somewhere in Ghana and attempts to identify the potholes we meet on the journey of life. While others throw in the towel; some forge ahead, maneuvering their ways out the potholes; and yet others who are also overawed by the depths of the potholes.
The satirical storyteller is not only acclaimed for his controversially exciting, attention-grabbing and pun intended titles but also his Midas touch in holding his audience spellbound with his lofty dialogues, witty stories, saturated plots, slapsticks, and socio-culturally identifiable characters.
In a statement issued by the Ghana 40 under 40 Theatre and Arts award winner, “Potholes” reminds us of where we are coming from, where we are, how we got there and where we intend going. It is a true definition of African theatre with a global appeal.
“As a storyteller, I must contribute my quota towards national development through the stories I tell, entering into people’s minds, observing what others are overlooking, and setting agenda geared towards societal emancipation, revival, and transformation.” He said.
“ I believe “Potholes” is a play filled with an alloy of social, cultural, religious and political issues that have unbridled us as a society. That is why I especially invite everyone to the national theatre to experience an unusual organic play on that day. The play is going to provide patrons with a total theatre experience that will leave indelible memories.” He concluded.
