  1. I watched this play yesterday...
    Believe me, these guys are a bunch of talents...
    I didn't know such quality of drama still exists in Nigeria.
    Each expressed the nuances, intonations, mannerisms etc expected of his role...
    I sincerely encourage any lover of theater arts to spend some time watching these guys...
    I also pray that this company will remain a shining light for this country, regarding true Art.
