HEAR WORD! the critically acclaimed play which shares multi-generational stories of the trials and triumphs of Nigerian women is back, and this time with a twist.
This news comes just after the group recently completed a Lagos, New York, California and Germany tour, which also included six shows at the world renowned Public Theatre in New York City; the Segerstorm Center in California and the Thalia Theater in Hamburg.
The international tour starred ten notable Nigerian actresses including Nollywood’s Joke Silva, Taiwo Ajai-Lycett, Elvina Ibru, Ufuoma McDermott and more. Now, in order to reach a broader audience in Nigeria, the show’s producer and director Ifeoma Fafunwa is working on a full pidgin version of the original show and casting all new performers.
“We are hoping to reach broader audiences across Nigeria and inspire even greater change.” says Ifeoma Fafunwa.
The show opens at the National Theatre, Iganmu on the 2nd and 3rd of March, 2019 and daily showtimes are 1pm and 5pm.
HEAR WORD! is produced by iOpenEye, a Nigerian production company that utilizes performance art to challenge the status quo and inspire social change.
