Abuja, Feb. 21, 2019 Seasoned broadcaster and TV host, Olisa Adibua is set to produce a new play, “3Some’’ in collaboration with Joseph Edgar.
This would be the third theatre production of the duo, after “Isale Eko’’ and “Oba Esugbayi,’’ a historical pieces told through music, drama and dance.
“3some’’, written by Jude Idada, is a psycho-erotic play about a troubled couple who separated due to sexual incompatibility.
It goes further to narrate how the bride’s mother intervened by offering practical example to her son-in-law on how to please a woman.
The play, which relies heavily on the audience’s imagination was deliberately designed to arouse erotic mental pictures as the actress mimes squirts and orgasmic reactions to the words.
Additional effect is created during the sexually-charged scenes, with the auditorium thrown into darkness, enabling the audience to be completely immersed in the live action.
The play, which is scheduled to hold in June in Lagos state is rated 18, was completely sold out at Freedom Park, Broad Street during the Lagos Theatre Festival in 2018, says OlisaTV media platform.
Speaking on his involvement in stage plays, Adibua said that “Theatre for me is the ‘realest’ and ‘rawest’ form of entertainment”.
He stressed the important of telling the story of sexual relations in marriages and relationships, adding that theatre should be reflective of contemporary issues in the larger society.
“The world has changed and things have moved on. We can’t be living in the wrong century. We have to bring people to this century and to say this is what is going on right now,” he said.
Adibua was the first co-host of the first edition of Big Brother Nigeria and also the Nigerian travel food doc-series, “Bukas and Joint” in search of the most authentic Bukas and Joints.
