Uganda's seminal theatre group, The Ebonies, will tomorrow seal what has been an outstanding year, with the premiere of their latest production, Malaysia, at Theatre La Bonita.
Word has it that the play about life's challenges and inequality is inspired by the group's recent tour of Europe and Asia where they were trained in acting. The group returned with state-of-the-art theatre equipment which they will put to use tomorrow.
"There is a tendency for people to think that they are the most troubled, forgetting that life could be harder at the other side of the fence," said Paul Jjingo, a senior member of the group, imploring people to be grateful for the little things they have.
Malaysia, which Jjingo says is a collection of real-life vignettes, echoes themes of exploitation, hypocrisy, corruption and love, among others.
Gates open at 5pm.
