Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw-Nuttal and Carol King are among the prolific thespians that starred in The Wives, a stage play written by Professor Ahmed Yerima.
Other actors that starred in the play include Catherine Edoho, Kemi ‘Lala’ Akindoju, Sola Roberts, Rotimi Fakunle, Gbenga Adekanmbi and a host of other well known actors and actresses.
In The Wives, Yerima’s two plots craftily dissolve into one with lessons for everyone to learn. Are most men and husbands two-faced and hypocritical?
The question of ‘can a man keep his most cherished secrets forever?’ is the central theme of the play. There lies a sordid little secret and no one wants to talk about it.
The Wives is a dark comedy rich in sensuality and scathing humour. It is directed by a brilliant director, Kenneth Uphopho, the former secretary general of the Dance Guild of Nigeria, Lagos shapter.
The Wives was staged yesterday at The Knot Centre, Yaba, Lagos.
“We are excited about this play, especially the fact that we are able to gather this galaxy of stars to the mainland,” said Uphopho after the show.
