‘Bukom’, a riveting play about the sprawling historic town of Bukom is set to play at the National Theatre on November 11.
Written by the host of Showbiz A-Z on Joy FM, Naa Ashorkor, the play is a beautiful piece of stagecraft that highlights the various facets of life in Bukom, which is popular for its boxing legacies.
Directed by Nana Ama Achiaa Prempeh, the play is a comic adaptation of Bill Marshall’s story set in the 1970s on the streets of Bukom.
It tells the story of Ataa Kojo, who is satisfied to have won a gold tiepin for twenty-five years of loyal service to an European trading company.
At his age, he has not done badly at all and would be completely satisfied with a modern toilet facility in his house but the City Council says he needs a permit to undertake the construction works.
‘Bukom’ brings a captivating insight into how the people live in a comic manner.
‘Bukom’, produced by April Productions, stars Pearl Darkey, Clemento Suarez, Jeneral Ntatiah, Adeline Adjokatse and Chapman Quayson.
