Watch Dolapo Oni in Purge at Lagos Theatre Festival 2016


Lagos Theatre Festival returns this year from the 23rd–28th February 2016 in a bigger and better way as part of UK/Nigeria 2015–16. The festival will take place at several venues on Lagos Island and the Mainland with a curated programme running alongside a fringe strand, allowing a greater than ever number of artists and audiences to take part.

Purge is a play to look out for during the festival. It tells the story of the world's most brutal game of friendship maintenance; in which someone gives strangers one minute to decide which of his Facebook friends to keep or delete. The deleting is real, the pace is maniacal, the results are final.

New York-born, London-based artist Brian Lobel brings Purge to Lagos with performers Marcy Dolapo Oni and Gideon Okeke, who will defend their friends, share tales of love and loss, and explore this strange world of social media and friendships which are added/deleted with the click of a button.
