ABOUT THE PLAY
Sleep sef na Wahala is a comedy about Amaechi, a half-employed-and-half-unemployed part time worker and full time slave.
After a soul-crushing 72 hour work shift, all Amaechi wants is sleep. Unfortunately for Amaechi, his landlady wants him. His neighbour also wants him. The police want him. Even the friendly neighbourhood preacher wants him. Amaechi just wants sleep. But does sleep want Amaechi?
Shortlisted for the 2009 Abuja Writers’ Forum competition, this hilarious play promises big laughs and great entertainment after the class’ wahala.
