If you watched the last play by Roverman Productions, you noticed that Uncle Ebo Whyte and his team are always on a quest to beat their own standards and blow your mind with something new. Just when the play ended, the lights went off and people thought that ECG had done their thing again. Little did they know that it was part of a grand plan to amaze them as the cast turned on colourful LED lights on their costumes to dance, much to the rapturous applause of the overwhelmed audience.
This time around, Uncle Ebo and his team are working on another surprise in their latest production; Forbidden. Although they are trying hard to keep it a secret they can tell you this, apart from the stage flats which are made of wood, ‘everything’ else is a human being. As to what that means, you will have to buy a ticket to come and see.
Kwaku Koduah, aka Junior, an ace radio personality, finds himself in a dilemma. His lifestyle, which he has no intention of changing, has sent his mother on admission at the hospital and caused his father so much embarrassment that he has had to resign his position as a senior pastor of his church. Now Junior has to find a way of maintaining his wild lifestyle and at the same time make his parents happy.
Is the answer Hilda, the innocent sweet and beautiful girl with a fantastic voice whom his parents have adopted? If only he can get the girl to marry him then he can give his parents the impression that he is settling down. But why is his own brother who is also a married pastor trying to undermine his moves to woo her?
Will Junior get his way with his this scheme? And what price will Hilda pay is she ignores the warning not to say to Junior?
