Sometimes history presents an anomaly; like a giant that crawls on its knees instead rather than stands on its feet. When a country destined naturally for greatness wallows in insolvency as a result of greed and self-aggrandizement. When a nation comes to a point of reckoning with its fault-finding as fingers are pointed and blows are exchanged.
The stage play â€œOur Son the Ministerâ€ raises a standard. In the mayhem of who is to blame and whose hands are soiled as regards Nigeriaâ€™s political eco-system, the play holds up a mirror to the society, and highlights its culpability in making bad leaders.
â€œOur Son the Ministerâ€ is the winning play from the maiden edition of Beeta Playwright Competition organised by Beeta Universal Arts Foundation. Written by Paul Ugbede, the play is produced by award winning actress and super talented thespian Bikiya Graham-Douglas, directed by Kenneth Uphopho and starring talented actors to include Diana Yekinni, Patrick Diabuah, Chris Ihuewa, Soibifaa Dokubo, Ikpowonsa Gold, Inna Erizia, Bola Stephen, Omolulu Sodiya, Paul Morgan, Biodun Kassim and Oladapo Gabdamosi .
