Producers of the Heritage Theatre Series are set to stage another thrilling play, the second in the series, on Ghana’s independence struggle; WogbeJeke: The Tale of Two Men.

B Danquah and Kwame Nkrumah, two of the major figures in the struggle, as well as other actors whose efforts where significant in the independence struggle.
