There will be an encore of Uncle Ebo Whyte’s latest play, Sankofa, at the National Theatre today, September 3, and tomorrow, September 4.
However, during their stay at the Oriental Hotel in Australia to present an award, they are taught a series of valuable lessons which cause them to soberly reflect on how their actions have affected the lives of others.
Uncle Ebo Whyte has made it a point to merge entertainment with social commentary and this is obvious in Sankofa.
Some themes explored in the play include the ills of the educational system and the dangers of parents pressuring their children to conform to their expectations.
The antics of the two professors, Prof Hardy and Prof Danso, are a delight to behold as they execute their roles to perfection.
The pair do a good job of portraying the rigid and unforgiving attitude the public has come to expect from authorities in academia.
Dear God Comma, Bananas and Groudnuts, Forbidden, Puppeteers and The Smarest Man aAive are some of the plays by Uncle Ebo Whyte and his Roverman Productions.
