Latif Abubakar’s Globe Productions are known for treating Ghanaians to hilarious stage plays and they are about to do just that with their latest production, Judas and Delilah.

Judas and Delilah which comes off on May 6 and 7 at the Accra International Conference Centre at 4pm and 8pm each day promises to be another success story from Globe Productions.

Written and directed by Latif Abubakar, the play is about a nurse who is obsessed about a doctor and a watchman who is obsessed about the nurse. The nurse and the watchman are perfecting their tricks on how to be able to win the heart of the doctor and nurse respectively.

Speaking to Showbiz last Tuesday, Latif said patrons who will make it to the Conference Centre will have a time of their lives since the play is very hilarious and educative, “the objective of the play is to be able to educate people with first aid tips and we are doing this in collaboration with the National Ambulance Service,” he said.

“I am talking about basic tips that everyone must know like how to handle heart attack, high and low blood pressure, fainting, how to handle minor burns and cuts, and how to prevent and manage cholera, malaria and diarrhoea.”

According to Latif, patrons won’t just be enjoying the play but learning so much as well, “We teach all these in the play in a very hilarious manner, even though it is a love story about betrayal, you will surely be educated, it is an innovative training programme in the form of drama,” he said.

Judas and Delilah is the ninth play from Globe Productions and it stars Ecow Smith-Asante, Gloria Ose-Sarfo and a host of others.

Latif is optimistic about Judas and Delilah doing well just like their previous productions, “Over the years, we have entertained about 20,000 people across five cities in Ghana and the story won’t be different with Judas and Delilah.

Judas and Delilah is sponsored by Unibank, Yomi Yogourt, Starz Energy Drink, Verna Mineral Water and Royal Senchi. Media partners are Graphic Showbiz, TV3 and Citi FM.
