The Silent Itch presents a peek preview of Said Ahmed Mohamed’s AMEZIDI at the Little Theatre Club on 21st June, at 6.30PM.
The preview will be preceded by a variety of performances by the Talent Unplugged, an LTC initiative that provides a platform for upcoming young artistes to showcase their talents amongst their peers. The launch of Amezidi at this platform is a deliberate effort to engage the youth in the conversation that will follow after the performance.
Directed by Hillary Namanje,the play is produced for the Silent Itch by Hardik Modha.
Amezidi employs dry wit, symbolism and sarcasm to ultimately force you ask yourself some very deep questions about Africa.
No sector escapes the author’s sharp wit: he effortlessly directs focus to the mess in education, health, agriculture, politics, even leisure. In the end, the play leaves a permanent impression that may be a life changing experience!
An open discussion forum pitting the actors Hillary Namanje (Ame), Matayo Randu (Zidi) and Georgia (Mari), fellow artistes, members of the press and the general public will follow after the performances. We expect a robust and lively discussion about the lessons, questions and observations raised by the author of Amezidi.
There are no charges for the 21st June preview.
As part of our efforts, to take the play on the road, we have a pop up appearance at Lotus Hotel on 29th June 2017 at 7pm. More details about the play’s tour will be shared at the Peek Preview
