Event Description

‘Dear Country’ by Ikenna Jude Okpala is a theatrical expression that captures the Nigerian story beginning from the era of colonialism where the British government controlled and managed the entire affairs of the country to this era of neo-colonialism where, even though we are being ruled by our own colour, it is simply about slavery, corruption, ‘chop and clean mouth’ government, poverty on the masses and so many other economic vices.

In this highly apolitical piece are highlights of so many ills plaguing the Nigerian society with a unique approach and creative fusion of drama, poetry, dance, music and media in painting clear instances of these societal vices; the issues of cultural disunity in diversity, religious disharmony and basic economic issues cannot be overemphasized in this work of art.

The play also proffers and suggests practical and workable solutions as to how these societal ills can be curbed and ameliorated for the good of every Nigerian. A new and better Nigeria is hereby campaigned for. Also in the play is a romantic twist, which gives it a hitch of hope, a hope that can transcend through every issues.
