‘Thank God For Idiots’ Play To Be Screened Online
An Award-winning playwright and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Globe Productions, Latif Abubakar, will be bringing one of his plays to the homes of the general public.
'Thank God for Idiots' will be screened via the YouTube page of Globe Productions as well as his personal page, @Latif Abubakar on Thursday, April 30, 2020 at 8:00pm.
According to Latif, the objectives of screening the play via social media are to inspire, entertain and educate people during these trying moments.
He indicated that the growing interest of patrons and the positive impact of their plays on the society had necessitated and motivated this initiative.
“We are of the hope that this would impact and touch more lives as we stay home and observe the ban on social gathering issued by the government,” Latif said.
There will also be giveaways that include airtime to patrons and followers of his social media handles.
He explained that scratch card numbers for airtime of the various networks will be published on his Instagram page, @LatifGlobe, at periodic intervals for the fastest fingers.
