Featuring actors such as Tana Adelana, Gideon Okeke, Juliana Olayode, Ayo Ayoola, Moshood Fattah, Ralph Okoro, Josephine Ewuru, Iyke Okechukwu and more, the play reflects the conversations to be had – of changing gender roles and stereotypes in recent public discourse.
The stage play addresses various pressures men have to grapple with – pressure of being rejected or accepted by the womenfolk, pressure from the extended family, financial pressure, and the general pressure the society puts on a man in his quest to prove that he is man enough.
Speaking about the play, Bolanle Austen-Peters said: “Man Enough is the voice of man crying to be heard, yelling to be saved from a world that thinks he is ‘Super Man’; it is the story of man and the fear to speak; it is the story of man speaking for the first time.
“This is not the story of three men; it is the story of every man – from Africa to Asia, to Europe and America – every man who must prove to the world that he is man enough,” she added.
Following tonight’s performance, the play which is produced by Bolanle Austen-Peters Productions, will go on stage again on October 12 and 13, 2019.
