Theatre Producer, Joseph Edgar to produce, Aremu – Depicting the Life of Obasanjo
Joseph Edgar is one distinctive Producer whose passion and love for Theatre and Stage plays have brought him to produce several ground breaking productions in the last few years. His works are always top notched with the best characters, deeply told stories, props of creative designs and an interpretation of excellent acting skills.
From producing Loud Whispers with Alibaba which was his first outing and after which he did Isale Eko which was part of the Lagos at fifty celebrations down to Oba Esugbayi and followed by the Erotic Jude Idada scripted play, 3some and finally Emotan which was the Official Play of the National Festival for Arts and Culture which held in Benin. He and his team are preparing to deliver Aremu which is a descriptive look at the life and times of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo. The Play was written by Prof Ahmed Yerima the former DG of the National Troupe.
Speaking to Joseph Edgar he shares, ‘ The story of Obasanjo must be heard because it resonates amongst all classes of Nigerians and indeed Africans. From his peasant birth through the sufferings of a prisoner of conscience up to the apogee of power and influence you will see the story of resilience, courage, principled leadership. Values that seem lost in today’s Nigeria. For me Aremu will give us a strong basis to reconnect to our core as Nigerians as we struggle to regain our depth as a proud people.‘
Joseph Edgar has kick started the promotional campaign for Aremu which begins with the Search of Who is Aremu? It’s a story that would be mind blowing, culture deep, history retold and a lot of suspense for its viewers.
