Patience Ozokwo shares photos with Onyeka Onwenu on set of stage play

Veteran actress Patience Ozokwo and Onyeka Onwenu have begun rehearsals for their recently announced stage play Speaking Out which also features Kate Henshaw.

Patience shared photos from the set on Instagram on Wednesday.

“We are getting ready to thoroughly entertain you. Hope you are getting ready to be wowed. January 1st-3rd 2022,” she wrote.

Written and compiled by Chukwuma Okoye from the original works of Tony Marinho, Speaking Out uses a surfeit of female experience to tell a story driven by a musical force as directed by the award-winning founder and director Kenneth Uphopho.

Beginning with a celebration of the birth of the girl child Speaking Out takes a roller-coaster ride through her daunting growth in a large gender prejudiced environment. This inequitable society plagues her every step, from the celebration of her birth through such typical challenges as child labour, education, female trafficking, dating, sex, spousal abuse, divorce and single motherhood. Singed but tireless she emerges through all odds with her daughter, stronger with dignity and pride, determined to live her life in full.

The play is set to hit the stage from January 1, 2022, at the Agip Hall Muson Center, Lagos.
