I was deleting pictures off my computer when I came across this one of Bolaji Alonge serenading Stella Damasus (to her dismay, as Bolaji can't sing) during a break in the rehearsals of Anatomy of a Woman, last March. Theatre gives great memories.

The Soyinka Season comes to an end next Sunday, the 29th, with The Jero Plays (Trials of Brother Jero/Jero's Metamorphosis) which I'm directing, but a new Season I'll be producing starts on Sunday the 5th of August...It's titled THEATRE @ TERRA...drama ad infinitum.

All this goodness has humbled me.
