Agip Hall, MUSON Centre, Onikan.
An authentically Nigerian adaptation of A View From The Bridge, Arthur Miller’s classic study of cultural conflict and emotional self-discovery, Fractures is a compelling tale of colliding worlds and the loss of control.
What Lies Beneath...
Idris and Nike live a mundane and predictable existence in the UK with their adopted daughter, Toju, until Dayo and Jide, undocumented immigrants the couple reluctantly agrees to harbour, arrive on their doorstep to push to the brink of eruption the volcano that has been roiling beneath the surface.
Drama. Comedy. Relevance
At its core provocative but inoﬀensive, thoughtprovoking but exoteric, Fractures is a careful balance of drama and comedy that explores familiar and socially relevant issues that resonate with audiences through an entertaining platform and captivating performances.
Continuing our vision to elevate theatre standards within Nigeria, Fractures has been designed with AbOriginal’s signature technical and dramatic rigour, employing one of Nigeria’s foremost directors, Kenneth Uphopho, and a highly skilled technical team.
Fractures will also feature a highly versatile, popular, and accomplished core cast drawn from the
overlapping worlds of television, music, and theatre, as well as talented up-and-coming performers, all of who come together seamlessly to create a thought provoking and fully entertaining dramatic work.
The popularity of the core cast, the familiarity of the themes and issues the production presents, and our interpretation of a famous Arthur Miller work present the perfect opportunity for corporate networking in a relaxed and entertaining form that is still refreshingly oﬀ the beaten track. Moreover, support of an art form associated with high culture will further Zenith Capital’s brand and Corporate Social Responsibility objectives, not just as a modern institution but also as one that is a Supporter of the Arts.
A Perfect Venue
As the best venue Nigerian theatre has to oﬀer, MUSON Centre’s Agip Hall is perfectly suited to this mid-sized production. Its proximity to Zenith Capital’s corporate oﬀices in Victoria Island is an added bonus for attending Bank executives—and for valued clients and partners.
