Looking for a stage production, and eventual movie set in the long run on my newly published and captivating Drama titled: ‘Ome Ihe Jide ofo Afo.’ The play can be purchased at Amazon.ca (click here to view) and will be available at the Theater Alberta’s Library later in May 2014.

This play, when staged and produced, would enrich Alberta indigenes and their cultural legacies, and it’s surrounding areas with the highest quality and professional theatrical piece. I believe, the play would further engage, educate and entertain while stimulating both feelings and thoughts of African Canadians and their Americans ancestral heritage and their likes.

In this Play, one family makes a desperate attempt to save face and to avert disaster for a young girl. She is made to make false accusation against a friend so desperate were they, that to them the lie becomes the truth. Although this girl is no innocent, she inspires sympathy as it seemed she was the only one in her family whose conscience, gave her a hard time. She went home crying, blaming herself as…”

Although there is an accuser and an accused in this play; it was not so much about them as it was about family honor, and as the scene unfolds, the two main players seemed to take a back seat to the will of the parents and elders who were fighting for the honor of their people as well, so it became as epic as Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story. It’s worth reading and staging into production.
