Fool’s Day by Femi Oke
Margaret Ayodele | Monday, 19 December 2016 | Total Views
Fool’s Day highlights the decline in value society has placed on the emotional and psychologic relationship between parent and child in contemporary Nigeria. It is a dramatic survey of the Nigerian family unit – the epicentre of the Nigerian society. Through the prism of comedy, this play touches on the serious issues that parents could face when they see their only priority as providing for their children’s financial well-being.
Featuring Toyin Buraimoh, Bunmi Sogade, Joy Akrah, Samson Balogun, Blessing Nwabuisi and many more under the creative direction of Austine Onuoha, Femi Oke’s play is increasingly relevant today as labour economics force parents to make stark choices. This a hilarious contemporary piece that holds up a mirror to society’s value system. Will society like how it looks?
