Saints and Sinners: a play on ‘galamsey’ shows this weekend
The fight against illegal mining continues as Globe Productions stages a play to conscientise people on its effects on society.
The play titled Saints and Sinners shows at the Accra International Conference Centre on Saturday 26th and 27th August, 2017.
The play tells a story of Mr. Agyeman, a cocoa farmer who out of pressure leased for ten years the only treasure of his generation to Mr. Blinks, a galamsey businessman for a huge amount of money. Unknown to Mr. Agyeman the land even after a year can’t be used for its purpose.
Speaking to Citi Showbiz, playwright Latif Abubakar, the said the motive is to make people aware of the effects of illegal mining, otherwise known as galamsey.
“The feedback and media reviews we’ve had from our patrons and critics has given us the motivation to produce another social change drama titled ‘Saints & Sinners’, a tragic comedy that seeks to educate people on the negative effects of galamsey on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and agriculture,” he said.
Globe Production’s plays have over years brought together patrons numbering over 20,000 from all walks of life to laugh out loud and get educated on basic things we most of the time overlook in our daily lives.
In the lead up to the 2016 general elections, the ‘I CAN’T THINK FAR’ play was staged in five cities across Ghana to educate people on anger management as we approached the elections and laugh off their stress and our most recent play, JUDAS & DELILAH; which was on basic first aid tips.
The play shows at the Accra International Conference Centre on 26th and 27th August at 4pm and 8pm. Tickets are selling for GHS 60 per show.
‘Saints and Sinners’ will also be staged in Tamale on 23rd September, Takoradi on 30th September and Kumasi on the7th of October, 2017.
Tickets are available at Koala, Accra Mall, Joy FM, Shell Shops (Airport, East Legon, Sakaman and Tema Comm. 11), and Baatsona Total.
Saints and Sinners is organized by Globe Productions in partnership with WaterAid Ghana, Graphic Communications Group with support from the Media Coalition Against Galamsey and sponsored by Yomi Yoghurt, The Royal Senchi, Turkish Airlines and Unibank.
