When their single mother suffers a debilitating heart failure, three sisters – Kesiena, Rume and Ogor – reunite one more time at Rume’s Private Night Club. Past resentments bubble to the surface as the sisters are forced to deal with their individual demons. The pressures of society’s arbitrary formulations of youth, womanhood and the performance of social media fakery, are laid bare with drama, dance, music and sass. Hertitude brims with attitudes of hard truth, controversial morality, elegance and sassy entertainment in dramatic twists and turns. It is representative of contemporary Nigerian life where new visions, new ways of thinking and a re-imagining of the country is engendered. Our play Hertitude takes the lid off the familiar ba-dum-bum of social life in the city, and, consequently reveals the challenges of being a growing youth and a woman in Nigeria and reveals a society that is at war with itself. In performance, Hertitude fills the space with color, elegance and gut-wrenching honesty; where societal and individual foibles are exposed, even as we celebrate the power of hope and redemptive beauty. Hertitude parades a youthful cast and crew of trained, professional and talented Nigerian youths.#
