Written and directed by Ife Salako, REFLECTIONS is a satirical comedy of the Nigerian state amidst thought provoking discuss around mental health, suicide, relationship, domestic violence etc fused with humour. The play situated in Lagos, Nigeria features Tade and Dibia, two young and expectant men excitedly sharing their story as they journeyed through life. However their dark flame soon became a need for some reflection. It’s a must watch.
