Uganda: Ebonies Return With Malaysia

By Felix Eupal

After successfully staging their Valentine's day play, My Valentine, during the whole of February, The Ebonies return over the Easter weekend with a brand new play, Malaysia.

The play will be hosted at their home, Theatre La Bonita on Good Friday, Saturday and Easter Sunday. There will be two shows each day, at 2pm and 7pm. However, there will be no show on Easter Monday.

"A lot has been happening as many of our brothers and sisters try to make ends meet by going to different countries in search of work," says Ebonies director Sam Bagenda. He adds that "the tabloids have let out just the tip of what happens, and we have done enough research to come out with a play that explains what really happens to those who fly out in search for greener pastures."

The play focuses on how girls are turned into sex workers and how others actually get to like what they are doing. It further gives the story of what the men get to do, because most of the attention is usually placed on the girls.

Bagenda also noted that the play will be used by the group to unveil some of the new tracks that they have been working on. Entrance will be Shs 20,000, while VIP is Shs 25,000.
