Its great you've decided to do the Jero Plays afterall. I always belived that one is incomplete without the other. I am crazy about the Metamophosis, but not until you've read the Trials will you respect jero's genius in the Metamophosis. So who are the directors? I think more than any other thing, the Director makes the play. Cheers.

well, deji, apart from myself (The Jero plays), there'll be najite dede who'll probably be handling "The Lion and the Jewel", Segun Adefila with "Death and the King's Horseman", Kayode Peters who first directed "Who's Afraid Of Wole Soyinka?" and one other not fully confirmed yet.

Its a good thing you are all doing, I really hope more people take initiative and give the theatre a chance to thrive in Nigeria. Well done! By the way, the Jero plays........lots of memories, love it!

@ mamarita- There are few men I consider as highly as I do Wole Soyinka. I understand how you feel.

@ omosewa- The director, Najite Dede, will probably have to make her own mind up on that. Hope you make it down.


@ Storm- 73 o!

@ waffy- Thanx for the support, love. It can be gruelling work.
