Sunday 14th ‘A Harvest with Wole Soyinka‘ at Terra Kulture, Lagos

Performing Arts studio is back with The Jero Plays. The two short plays about Brother Jeroboam, the rather less than holy West African “beach divine” created by Nobel Laureate Professor Wole Soyinka. In this original comedy, the charlatan preacher, burdened by a “cross” known as the daughter of Eve uses Christian superstition for his own salvation. In the sequel, the profit minded “Prophet” thwarts a government attempt to cleanse the beach of all the dubious brethren who ply their trade there. Harvest with Wole Soyinka is showing this sunday at Terra kulture for the 2nd time this month, Last Sunday’s reception was so big you could tell that Prof Wole Soyinka’s fans where out to have fun at the play. Buy your discounted tickets online now and stand a chance to win a 3rd ticket free.



Make sure to have a great weekend.


See you nextweek.
