A hilarious political play in Ghana? #ICantThinkFar

My friend and Presec yearmate +Latif Abubakar has become one of the best playwrights in Ghana. We didn't have to do #DivorceOrSuicide after seeing #WhatCanComeCanCome so we went ahead to #ThankGodForIdiots anyway. And then we eventually had to go see #MallamsAndPastors because in this Ghana, its the thing to do.

If you didn't realise, these hashtags are all plays that Latif has directed and his Globe Productions has produced. There's also Gallery of Comedies. But you've deciphered this by now, Latif stages really hilarious plays - comedies. He's back with another play - #ICantThinkFar. If you said "#ICantThinkMadness" after you're in tune with the times and trends in Ghana. So surely, you can imagine that this new I Can't Think Far play would be timely, trendy, terrific, teary-eyed-funny and tantatlizing.

The best part for me about the play is that there is a tour and it would be showing in Accra, Kumasi, Tamale, Takoradi and Ho. Wanna get free tickets? You might want to pay attention to +Barcamp Accra +Barcamp Kumasi +Barcamp Tamale +Barcamp Takoradi and +Barcamp Ho on Twitter and Facebook.

Ofi,
PRESS RELEASE- A NON-VIOLENCE CAMPAIGN
LatifAbubakar is at it again with a hilarious political play dubbed I Can’t Think Far. It is his 1Oth play and his dedicated it to the promotion of nonviolence in our society. An agenda one cannot over emphasize during this political season, hence the writing and producing of a play with a theme on Anger Management.

The objective is to help curb violence by equipping people with the skills needed to control their anger and that of others. This play will be staged in at least five cities (Accra, Kumasi, Takoradi, Tamale, Ho) across the country. Also election reporters and people within the election hot spot communities as identify by the police will be given opportunity to benefit from this innovative skills training. 


I Can’t Think Far tells the story of a politician who is blind to the consequences of his bad temper. A few days to the long awaited nationwide presidential debate, he realizes how things are getting out of hand. He successfully seeks help from Reverend; an anger therapist. How far can they go?
