The Lion And The Jewel (Lagos)

Lion & The Jewel.jpg

Produced and Directed by Segun Adefila, "The Lion and the Jewel tell the story of three main characters - Baroka, Lakunle and Sidi. Baroka, the lion, fights with the Lakunle (the Western-educated village guy) over the right to marry Sidi (the village slay Queen). The play is filled with a lot of comic relief moments and lessons about preserving culture.

The Lion and the Jewel is a thought-provoking, values re-evaluating but laughter inducing piece of work from the pen of the quintessential wordsmith Wole Soyinka - as interpreted for the stage by your eclectic Crown Troupe of Africa."

Showing: January 21, 2018 at 3pm and 6pm.
