Movie producer and director, Shirley Frimpong Manso Thursday night premiered her latest work, Adams Apple at the National Theatre.

Synonymous with all her productions, the premiere registered another capacity attendance.

Shirley, unlike her previous productions, was this time 'gambling' with a ten-part series and audience response was really crucial.

Shirley had explained earlier that the series have been necessitated by popular demand and that her fans said "one or two movies a year is not enough."

Monitoring the audience's constant giggling and applause throughout the premiere, it was obvious Shirley has once again nailed it with another excellent production.

Many enthusiasts who spoke to after the premiere said they can't wait to see the subsequent chapters of the series.

Chapter One of Adams Apples is set in the hustle and bustle of the city of Accra and it follows the lives of the four “Adams” - Ghanaian women; the widowed, ex-diplomat's wife and her three daughters in their early and mid thirties.

They work through domestic struggles, family life and personal battles to achieve success and happiness in a fast changing, 21st Century Ghana where love can elude the helplessly romantic; victory can scorn the hardworking and marriage can forever be an illusion. The Adams seek all these and more from life and each other.

The series stars renowned and fresh acts such as Yvonne Okoro, Jocelyn Dumas, Naa Ashorkor Mensah-Doku, Adjetey Anang, John Dumelo, Kofi Okyere Darko (KOD) and many new exciting faces who also attended the premiere.

According to producers, Sparrow Productions, each chapter of Adams Apples will open at the cinema every month over a 12-month period.
