Globe Productions and playwright Latif Abubakar have put together another thrilling, educative and entertaining stage play titled ‘Saints and Sinners’.
The play has been put together as part of efforts to fight the galamsey menace in the country.
Globe Productions’ plays have over the years brought together patrons from all walks of life to laugh out loud and get educated on things overlooked in daily lives.
In the lead up to the 2016 general elections, ‘I CAN’T THINK FAR’ was staged in five cities across Ghana to educate people on anger management.
The most recent play, JUDAS & DELILAH, was on basic first aid tips.
The latest dish on the menu to be served patrons – ‘Saints and Sinners’ – is a tragic comedy that seeks to educate people on the negative effects of galamsey on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and agriculture.
The play tells a story of Mr. Agyeman, a cocoa farmer, who out of pressure leased for ten years the only treasure of his generation to Mr. Blinks, a galamsey businessman, for a huge amount of money.
Unknown to Mr. Agyeman, the land even after a year can’t be used for its purpose. What happens to Mr. Agyeman and his entire generation? Did Mr. Blinks actually benefit from the land?
The play will be staged on Saturday and Sunday at the Accra International Conference Center (AICC) in the Greater Accra Region but expected to be repeated in three other regions.
Tickets go for GH¢60 and can be obtained at Koala, Accra Mall, Joy FM, Shell Shops (Airport, East Legon, Sakaman and Tema Comm. 11), and Baatsona Total.
