A CAMPAIGN AGAINST CHILD TRAFFICKING/LABOUR
Playwright Latif Abubakar’s Globe Productions are poised to thrill theatre enthusiasts with play at the end of the month. The play which aims at educating patrons on issues affecting society will focus on trafficking and child labour. Weaved with comedy, music and dance, the play would also reveal to why Santa Clause is out here when Christmas is actually some seven months away.
Titled “Christmas-In-May,” the play tells the story of four young adults in challenging times who were tricked into an unknown, and their leader gets nabbed. They however managed to escape, only to run into another unknown. When Santa Claus, also known as Father Christmas, makes an appearance way before the Yuletide, then there is something in the soup. It means something unusual is happening and the play will unravel that mystery.
Mr Abubakar said the growing interest of patrons and the positive impact of his plays on the society have motivated the production team to continue with the tri-annual performances and regional tours. “We hope to touch more lives in the years ahead with an improvement in the quality and hilarity of our plays,” he stated.
The play which is the 69th production of Globe Productions features legendary actor Fred Amugi, Jeneral Ntatia , Abraham MacPratt Dadzie, Shelter Say, Bright Kekeli Djangmah and Samira Suhini Farouk. It will show on Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29, 2022 at the Accra International Conference Centre at 4:00pm and 8:00pm respectively
Tickets for the play are on sale at the following venues; Airport Shell, Baatsona Total and Joy FM. Alternatively, patrons can buy tickets via *447*1092# or call 0275027000 for details
