The Secret Lives Of Baba Segi's Wives

 Have you read The Secret Lives Of Baba Segi's Wives by Lola Shoneyin?  If you have not, then you should embark on a search for the book.

It has been adapted for stage by Rotimi Babtunde and brought to stage by Femi Elufowoju Jnr in association with The Theatre Royal Stratford East.  

The production which was conceived and directed by Femi Elufowoju Jnr performed to a sold out audience on Saturday 19th December 2015.  More pictures from the production after the cut...

The Secret Lives of Baba Segi's Wives:  A modern-day tragicomedy in One Act.

Meet Baba Segi - A prosperous middle-aged man of robust appetites, the patriarch of a large household that includes a trio of wives and seven children. But his desire to possess a fourth wife in the shape of Bolanle, a young university graduate wise to life's misfortunes, just might be his undoing.

What secret does she harbour, and are there more shocking truths on the brink of exposure?

This scandalous new play featuring original contemporary live Yoruba music, songs and dance, is performed by an all star, multi-talented ensemble.

I am looking forward to the 2016 production.
