STILL SINGLE IN GIDI (A STAGE PLAY)

After a successful Single In Gidi stage play in 2015, requests from far and near for a re-run have been pouring in.

Hence the sequel “Still Single In Gidi”.

The Story of being single in Lagos never grows old that’s why Single in Gidi stays relevant to us and comes back on an even larger stage in 2017!

Still Single In Gidi reflects the every unique situation many singles in Lagos experience. “Yoruba Demons”, “Becoming wifey”, “Single Motherhood”, “Lagos Packaging”…. you name it, are some of the themes explored in this well crafted stage play.

Dates: Friday, March 3rd and Saturday, March 4th 2017
Times: 7pm on March 3rd; 3pm and 6pm on March 4th
