Playwright Latif Abubakar’s Globe Productions is poised to thrill theatre enthusiasts with a play at the end of the month. The play which aims at educating patrons on issues affecting society will focus on trafficking and child labor.

Weaved with comedy, music, and dance, the play would also reveal why Santa Claus is out here when Christmas is actually some seven months away.

Titled “Christmas-In-May,” the play tells the story of four young adults in challenging times who were tricked into an unknown, and their leader gets nabbed.

They however managed to escape, only to run into another unknown.

The play continues with Santa Claus, also known as Father Christmas, making an appearance way before the Yuletide, which meant that“there is something in the soup”.

It means something unusual is happening and the play will unravel that mystery.

According to Mr. Abubakar, he was motivated to write the play because of the growing interest of patrons and the positive impact of his plays on society.

“We hope to touch more lives in the years ahead with an improvement in the quality and hilarity of our plays with the production team continuing with the tri-annual performances and regional tours,” he stated.

The play which is the 69th production of Globe Productions features legendary actors Fred Amugi, Jeneral Ntatia, Abraham Mac Pratt Dadzie, Shelter Say, Bright Kekeli Djangmah, and Samira Suhini Farouk. It will show on Saturday, May 28, and Sunday, May 29, 2022, at the Accra International Conference Centre at 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm respectively.

Some of the plays that have come from the stables of Globe Productions include, Something Must Kill A Man, which focused on Teambuilding, I Can’t Think Far, which is about peaceful elections; Saints and Sinners which highlights the Menace of galamsey; Men Don Die touches on road safety and Judas and Delilah centers on health and first aid tips.
