Adjetey Annan, Ekow Smith-Asante return to stage in play for social change

Actors Adjetey Annan and Ekow Smith-Asante are back on the screen after a long break from the move industry.

The two veteran actors are said to feature in a play dubbed: ‘Men don die,’ written by Latif Abubakar.

The play tells a story of two couples who set off on a long journey in a mummy truck popularly called ‘boneshaker.’

One couple was on their way to get married and the other on their way to finalise a divorce.

Their world came to an end when their vehicle developed a problem consequently getting stuck in the middle of the road. Abandoned and lost, the ensuing happening is for all to witness. Will love save the day or the differences between the divorcing couple win?

‘Men don die’ shows at the Accra International Conference Centre on April 28 and 29 at 4:00 p.m., and 8:00 p.m., each night.

Speaking to journalists in Accra, the playwright and producer, Latif Abubakar promised patrons Globe Productions has raised the bar when it comes to theatre.

“The mission of Globe Productions is to keep touching lives and making people happy. We want to help them appreciate life by distancing themselves from the exigencies of the times,” he added.

The play seeks to advocate a road safety campaign and has a theme ‘’ There is always light, no matter the situation” which lays credence to the saying “in thy light, we shall see light”.

Their latest production ‘Men don die’ is a road safety campaign initiative in partnership with Presec@80 Anniversary and the National Road Safety Commission (NRSC).

The objectives of the play are to educate people on road safety and highlight the negative effects of road accidents on the society and nation-building.

Last year, Globe Productions championed social change projects successfully through drama on teething issues such as galamsey, first aid and non-violence that attracted about 20,000 patrons across the country.
