Nigerian actress, Bikiya Graham-Douglas, has been selected among Africa’s biggest and talented theatre actors to perform ‘Wait’ at the 2016 Cape Town Fringe Festival, which will take place from September 22 to October 8.
‘WAIT’ is written by Dipo Agboluaje, directed by Kenneth Uphopho and produced by Beeta Universal Arts Foundation.
This critically acclaimed piece first debuted at the Samuel Beckett Theatre in Dublin, Ireland, as part of the Africa Day Conference 2015 and also showcased at the 2016 British Council Lagos Theatre Festival 2016.
The movie highlights the strength of the African woman as she challenges a system that forces her into early marriage and tries to deny her an education because she is a woman.
Graham-Douglas said, “I’m thrilled ‘WAIT’ has been selected. Girls should be allowed to be girls, their innocence should not be stolen by forcing them into early marriage and every woman has a right to be educated. The message of ‘WAIT’ is important and I am honoured to lend my voice to the cause.”
The actress has successfully produced a number of stage shows. She has featured in ‘Colored Girls’, ‘Surulere’, ‘Flower Girl’, ‘The Vagina Monologues’, ‘Iya-Ile’, ‘Lunch Time Heroes,’ ‘Shuga’ and a host of other projects.
