Roverman Productions & Ebo Whyte thrill Ghanaians with "Bananas & Groundnuts"

Yet another hilarious comedy, ‘Banana’s and Groundnuts’ is one with a storyline which everyone (or at least most Ghanaians) can relate to.

Roverman Productions has for the past 7 years thrilled Ghanaians with hilarious and inspiring quarterly plays.  The productions house is know for a usually early start to their plays, but the media screening of it's latest play "" started quite substantially late.

Despite the late start, the show still lived up to the standard set by Roverman Productions. The play as their formers, in the first and second quarter of 2015, ‘Games Men Play’ and ‘Forbidden’ both attracted large audiences to the National Theatre.

The play tells the story of a young and intelligent female lawyer, Adelaide but affectionately called Ade who has two suitors.

Charlie is a childish, fun-loving, carefree and adventurous person and Abraham, a nerd who is extremely caring, disciplined and responsible young man.

But Ade is in a dilemma on which one of them to choose.

Ade won a big case a day before her birthday and decided to take the day off to treat herself with some pampering but all plans changed when she got kidnapped by Charlie on her way to a lunch date with Abraham.

How did her birthday end? And is Ade in a position to choose a lifetime partner?

The show took the house up in applause as the laughter emanated long with the cheers for the ingenuity spontaneous and imminent. And despite the late start, it seems the patrons had forgotten all about it to the laughter invoked by the play

The show was premiered to staff of Airtel Ghana, their families as well as the company’s Premier customers on 26 of August.

Bananas & Groundnuts shows at the National Theatre on August 28, 29 and 30 at 4pm and 8pm daily and again on September 5 and 6 at the same venue and time.

The production is sponsored by Airtel and Rover Report Monthly Magazine.
