In a bid to make staying at home just a bit more tolerable, Bolanle Austen-Peters Productions, headed by the award winning film and theatre director herself, is offering its audience everywhere the opportunity to watch highly-acclaimed stage plays from the comfort of your couch.
“To lighten the mood and lift the spirits of our amazing audience, we are bringing the Terra experience online,” BAP Productions announced via Instagram, starting with the award-winning play: Fela & The Kalakuta Queens, the full version of which is available to watch on YouTube now.
The globally acclaimed musical follows the drama surrounding Fela and his queens in their struggle with the government, the police, and negative social stigmas. Fela & The Kalakuta Queens has gone on to become the biggest out of West Africa, having had over 120,000 people watch it and being shown in Lagos, Cairo and down south in Pretoria between 2017 and 2020.
Further, the production company stated it will be releasing new plays online every Sunday at 8pm. Get in here, theatre buffs!
