A scene from Thank God for Idiots
These days, quality entertainment, apart from the usual musical concerts, seems to be a rare. It is therefore welcome news when other forms of entertainment are offered.
For lovers of quality entertainment, there is certainly good news. Globe Productions presents a satirical stage drama dubbed ‘Thank God for Idiots’ at the National Theatre on Friday, June 29.
This is Globe Production’s fourth foray into the field of stage drama with two previous productions under their belt.
The outfit was responsible for critically acclaimed ‘Romantic Nonsense’, ‘You May Kiss the Corpse’ and also produced the Gallery of Comedies, one of the greatest comedies ever produced in Ghana.
This time around, it has come up with this commonsense filled satirical piece.
Imagine a young couple who are living large because the man has inherited his late brother’s property. Despite all they have, the marriage is on the rocks.
Expressing their emotions towards each other is one big problem. One midnight, in the midst of a very heated argument, they have a visitor.
‘Thank God for Idiots’ addresses the questions on who this visitor is, whether the visitor is the ghost of his late brother, the purpose of the visit at that ungodly hour and whether this visit would be good or bad news for the couple.
The drama would be staged twice on the 29th. The first production is at 5pm and the second one at 8pm. The show also moves to Takoradi on 7th July and to Kumasi ending of July 2012.
