“This show takes you back to that time when life was simpler. When 50 kobo could buy you kwilikwi, and when Facebook was not an app on your phone, but the birthdays in your home. Yes, it takes you back to those days of Papa Ajasco, Fuji House of Commotion, Super Story, and the ever mesmerizing tales by moonlight. Then it takes you straight to the days in secondary school and those seniors that made sure you saw ‘nwiii’, and to the struggles of becoming who you’ve ever dreamt of being after University. It’s a story of love, faith, and purpose. You see, for the journey you take in life, is not too different from mine. We are all similar. I tell you, we all share the same stories. This production explores our shared humanity.”
Featuring a cast of one, the show promises to leave the audience laughing their hearts out, drooling in nostalgia, fixed on their seats and wanting some more. Poems from the show performed to private audiences have received glowing reviews and acclaim.
The event which has limited seating is FREE in Abakaliki and Umuahia. Single tickets for Lagos and Abuja go from N2000 and are on sale online at http://www.chukwuka.org/transition and also in person at the event venue.
