Wats Dis All About

Wat’s Dis All About is a Nigerian street version of WOZA ALBERT- a South African play created by Mbongeni Ngema, Percy Mtwa and Barney Simon under the siege of apartheid and became one of the most outstanding successes in the anti-apartheid crusade. Its adaptation to the Nigerian socio political situation is also based on the dazzling, hilarious and abstract idea of the coming of the Messiah to Nigeria. ‘Wat’s Dis All About’ is a two man comedy play with each actor playing multiple distinctive characters morphing from one skit to another as the story unfolds. It is a fast paced hilarious play riding on a synergy of style and artistic stamina. The play features Toyin Oshinaike, a theatre mainstay and Sinmileoluwa Hassan (OAP, Lagos Traffic Radio). Wat’s Dis All About is written in pidgin English by Toyin Oshinaike.

Time:  7:00PM Sharrrrp

Fee: N2,000

Location: Freedom Park Amphitheater,1 Broad Street, Lagos Island, Lagos
