Written by Ghanian-American writer/performer Jocelyn Bioh (School Girls; or, The African Mean Girls Play), this hilarious play with sharp wit and big heart spotlights the 1990s explosion of Nigeria’s film industry Nollywood, which churned out films as the country contended with economic and political turmoil. An aspiring ingenue yearns for the glitz and glamor of movie stardom and lands an audition with Nollywood’s hottest director. Between cat fights with the resident diva and igniting sparks with “Nigeria’s Sexiest Man Born,” her dreams of leaving her travel agency job behind for a thrilling life might just come true. Bay Area theater veteran Margo Hall directs.
