For The Love Of A Woman At Citizens Centre

By Daily Graphic

Theatre Mirrors, Ghana’s most active amateur theatre group, with a track record of 1,200 public performances in their 23 years of existence, is out again this weekend at the Citizens Centre at Asylum Down in Accra, with their flagship production, For The Love Of A Woman.

A very witty script, written by Ghana’s theatre queen, Gloria Yartey and directed by Emmary Brown, it tells the story of a king faced with two options: give up the throne or divorce his wife with slave ancestry. The king refuses either option and instead attacks his accusers with terrible disastrous results.

It was this play that shot Kalsoum Sinare into stardom in the role of Nitaya and also opened doors for several other stars including like Nat Banini and Emmanuel Armah.

Theatre Mirrors is parading a completely new set of actors this time round. They are led by beauty queen Iness Dela Ayorkovi, who takes on the role of the seductive slave girl, Furana.

Also appearing are Justicia Ansa Addo as the new-found Nitaya and the group’s former secretary, Rukaya as Yabilla.

For The Love Of A Woman is a very refreshing play and the Theatre Mirrors has performed it over 150 times. It runs at Citizens Centre today, Saturday June 27 at 8.00p.m.
