Drama at Ake Festival

On Friday evening of the Festival, attendees will get to watch a stage production which showcases the best of Nigerian/African talent. Currently being shown at the Arcola Theatre in London, The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives is a colourful, joyous and searing production. At the centre of this story is Baba Segi, his collection of wives and a gaggle of children who are evidence of his prosperity, success and the validation of his manhood. Everything runs reasonably smoothly until Bolanle, a graduate amongst the semi-literate wives, arrives. Bolanle's entrance unwittingly set to expose a secret that her co-wives intend to protect, at all costs.
