LOST

A new play written and directed by Jude Idada

Nana has been in a coma for fifteen months. She is in a vegetative state. The doctors say she won’t wake up from her deep sleep. In the high brow Lagos hospital room, Nana’s daughter is ready to pull the plug. Her son, an immigrant in North America, is rushing back to stop his sister. It is a battle of wills. But they are not alone, or are they? Trapped in the dark void of her coma, Nana can still hear voices. She hears the bitter arguments that erupt between the siblings – arguments which are not just about mercy killing and crippling hospital bills but revolve around a regrettable decision she had made in the past. Mother, daughter and son have unsettled business, which nags not just the living but also the living-dead. They have to confront partial secrets that have haunted the family. With candour and humour, playwright and director Jude Idada probes the personal psyches that collide in attempts to forge a wholesome identity. This full-length drama is soulful, magical and realistic all at once.

"…THE PERFORMERS IN THE ENGAGEMENT WERE ALL QUITE ANIMATED, AND I ENJOYED THE WAY IT'S PRESENTED AS A MATING DANCE. WHEN RONKE (JANINE JOHN) AND ELEMUDE (ARI MILLEN) START BICKERING, THEY ACTUALLY START SNIFFING AND PECKING LIKE A ROOSTER AND A HEN. ALSO FUN WAS THE DRUMMER WHO DOESN'T SPEAK (THOUGH THE CHARACTERS DO ACKNOWLEDGE HIM), BUT PROVIDES THE PLAY WITH A SOUNDTRACK. THE ENGAGEMENT OFFERS A GOOD OPPORTUNITY TO SEE SOME AUTHENTIC AFRICAN DRUMMING AND SINGING. Lost - Crystal Wood, Mooney on Twitter, April 26, 2011
