Ghanaian playwright, Fiifi Coleman says his production house is set to premiere a virtual play by the end of May.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic that has hit most nations across the world, many people including Ghana are using virtual means to entertain themselves.
While the pandemic has led to the lockdown of some countries, Ghana has placed a ban on social gathering of more than 25 people.
In Ghana, people are also encouraged to stay home so as to prevent the spread of the virus that has infected over 5,000 people and killed 22 others.
Speaking to Joy News’ Doreen Avio, Mr. Coleman said he is optimistic the dram will keep people at home while entertaining them.
“My first virtual play goes up at the end of the month. It is titled “You play me, I play you”.
“The two-man show will feature Clemento Suarez and General Ntim. It is a one hour, fifteen minutes play.
He tells Joy News, he is hopeful the virtual play will be as profitable as when shown at the National Theatre.
“That’s the way we are going now and we hope it will be as profitable as it would have been if we had done it at the National Theater. “
Fiifi Coleman used the opportunity to call on Ghanaians to adhere strictly to all the Covid-19 protocols outlined by the Ghana Health Service and the World Health Organisation.
He is the Chief Executive Officer for Fiifi Coleman productions and also known for the numerous plays and movies he has featured in both in Ghana and Nigeria.
