Village Minds Production and Alliance Francaise Accra presents an exciting and thought-provoking play entitled HOMELESS at the Amphitheatre of Alliance Francaise on 11TH November, 2016 at 7pm.

The makers of this play presented the epic performance, THE LOVE OF MAMAVI, last year at the same venue and succeeded in treating theatre enthusiasts to an action laden performance that left the audience begging for more. This year, however, the spotlight is on people living in the streets, how they survive and what drives them into the streets.


In this play, destiny pairs Abubakar Mahama, played by Antonio Josiah Silva and John; a role played by Ken Arthur. These to individuals, each with a unique background employ fascinating ways and means of surviving in the great world and wide. The other characters, such as Lady, Adiza and Dzifa add spice to the plot with their stories about how they are raped, forced into prostitution and demeaning jobs in the streets of Accra. In the end all of them are here because of the erroneous misconception that Accra is a land of plenty. We leave the audience to determine the veracity of this idea.

The play is set in every alley, street, home and cranny of Accra and filled with humor which has a tendency of keeping an audience glued to their seat till the entire production is over; but hefty with message that cannot be overlooked.

In the end, everyone decides to go back home but what awaits their return is a matter of concern for them as they wonder if they will be accepted after picking up new and unacceptable habits from the streets.

From the makers of The Love of Mamavi comes another riveting drama, designed to shock, enlighten and initiate discourse. Homeless is written by Nii Ayi Solomon and directed by Woelinam Kurt Dziewornu-Norvor and ably assisted by Vivian Doe and Cygishmel Cherub. The production is also powered by Blaqsheep Multimedia Group.

Join as at Alliance Francaise on 11th November, 2016, at 7 pm and let us tell the story of the rejected, the homeless and the poor.
