Intense rehearsals are going on right now FOR Wole Soyinka's King Baabu Play presentation by De-Park Theatre being directed by Toyin Oshiniake.. NOT TO BE MISSED!!!
A play written by the Nobel prize-winner Wole Soyinka. being interpreted by Toyin Oshinaike and Oxygen Koncepts
According to Toyin he says
"With this interpretation King Baabu, you'll be amazed yet amused, at the role 'the other room' plays, in a beastly quest for the pleasure of absolute power.
A comical exaggeration of a collective tragedy.
The Park Theatre has flipped the game,
Park Theatre and Oxzygen Koncepts present:
King BAABU is written by the Nobel Prize-Winner Wole Soyinka.
"General Basha Bash takes power in a bloodless coup d'etat and In the spirit of democracy re-christens himself King Baabu."
King Baabu, after the manner of despotic tendencies, satirically arouses an exaggerated imitation of our participation as a people in a funny yet absurd manner.
With King Baabu, we intend not to abuse nay accuse but rather to use the opportunity to infuse a level of Caution in our choice of leadership yet we also intend that you laugh it off. Easy laughter is a genuine tonic for recession.
Don't get cracked. ⚠
King Baabu features an ensemble of seasoned theatre players which include:
