Femi Branch’s Jungle Justice at TerraKulture
Jungle Justice – Written by Femi Branch & Directed by Joshua Alabi.
A hilarious comedy set in a courtroom. Femi Branch‘s story centres around Ijimere Ika a notorious ‘area boy’ who is being arraigned in court for killing his friend. The play depicts a normal Nigerian court with a Judge and Lawyer but with a super-silly Policeman as court clerk, and dramatic innuendos to create humour and life. Not a kings palace! not a village square! Not a Classroom!! This is the only court where the Judge orders his Lawyers to kneel down, raise up your hands and close your eyes’… Crazy right??? The play holds a mirror to Nigerian psyche and our reactions to daily happenings in our country. Jungle Justice promises would leave your tommy aching for the whole day with great characters that have been carefully crafted by Femi Branch and masterfully directed Joshua Alabi in a fantastic ensemble for your entertainment.
