“Hannah”, The Iyawo (the Bride) comes to Arts Theatre for one day this year. It is a new play by Eternity Theatre Productions – the producer of Shakespeare’s Fathers & Daughters which showed at The Lounge, Leicester Square Theatre in June.
“Hannah, The Iyawo” opens with the wedding of Hannah who marries her first love, Kola, after a long separation forced upon them by her father, a British Diplomat. It is a beautiful Nigerian ceremony. She is the envy of many including Kola's ex, Penny.
Kola loves Hannah but she has to contend with his past… his mother… the long wait. Two worlds collide. Broken, yet unwavering but for how long? Will Hannah survive the taunts from Kola’s ex? the snide from his mother? the unbearable long wait? What will she do? Hold on to her dream or accept that Kola means more to her?
