Event Description

“If you didn’t understand the book, come and watch the play” – Brenda Uphopho (Producer ‘British Council’s Lagos Theatre Festival 2016/2017’)

Madmen & Specialists is set in the aftermath of the civil war and the resultant debilitating effect on the citizenry as civilians or military. Bero a doctor left his practice to participate in the war, with his father, who also left for the war to work with the injured and recuperating soldiers at war.

Contrary to Bero’s instructions, his sister; Si Bero, enlists the support of two women traditional healers; Iya Agba and Iya Mate, to help continue the practice of her brother. Iya Agba and Iya Mate have come to do as Si Bero requested, but on one condition that upon Dr Bero’s return from the war, he will continue the practice so that their knowledge will not go to waste.

 

What happens when the only obstacle to your ambition is your father?
What happens when a sacred pledge cannot be kept?
Madmen and Specialist exposes all of these and other intriguing issues.

Madmen and Specialist is directed by Kenneth Uphopho (Director of the critically acclaimed Saro the Musical and Single in Gidi), and features Patrick Diabuah, Bolanle Haastrup-Atitebi, Jeniffer Osammor, Austin Onuoha and Kelvinmary Ndukwe, amongst others.
