What happens when her demons emerge from the past she is trying to escape from? This is the conundrum at the heart of this funny, reflective and exhilarating play.

The play draws the audience in with good humour, AMAZING music and hits them with the truth they need to hear about chasing ones dreams and fighting ones fears.

Stage Play: THE MISTRESS OF WHOLESOME This Sunday

20141121-085946.jpg

Everyone loves a great show, and this is what MISTRESS OF WHOLESOME is!

What will you do if your husband’s mistress showed up at your door, to ask for an odd “favor” ?

In this play, Moji ‘the mistress’ surprises Adesuwa, ‘the wife’ of Lakunle in their home and holds her hostage. According to Moji, Lakunle has now fallen back in love with Adesuwa, as the couple has gotten closer in their efforts to adopt a baby.

Moji is naturally ‘very put out’ by this and wants Adesuwa to convince Lakunle to fall back in love with his mistress so that things can be the same as they were for the past few years.

Adesuwa, who is desperate for a baby sees Lakunle playing ‘the good and attentive husband’ as the only way that she will ever manage to adopt a child and naturally refuses.

Things get even more complicated in this comic stage play when a gentleman from the adoption agency arrives to interview Lakunle and Adesuwa and to screen them as potential parents. When it turns out that Lakunle is actually locked in the trunk of Moji’s car across town, the two women must act fast to salvage a situation that is going downhill at a rate of knots!
Dates: November 23 & 30, 2014.
Showtimes: 3:00pm and 6:00pm
Venue: Terra Kulture, Plot 1376 Tiamiyu Savage Street, Victoria Island, Lagos.

MISTRESS OF WHOLESOME is directed by veteran stage actor, Toyin Oshinaike, and will be starring media/entertainment heavyweights, Omoye ‘Brownie’ Uzamere, Evaezi Ogoro, and Toju Ejoh.
