A Play for Patrick Okorafor

On 26th June 2010, we performed a short play about the life of Patrick Okorafor at Reuterplatz in Berlin. The play was devised as part of the 48-Stunden-Neukölln festival, to raise awareness about his case. Patrick Okorafor was arrested at the age of 14 and has spent over half of his life in prison in the Nigerian state of Abia. Our group is actively campaigning for his release. You can help by sending an appeal to the Nigerian authorities here.

The play showed scenes from the life of an average 29-year-old, to highlight what Patrick has been missing out on all these years. We have posted a video about the performance here.

A big thank you to everyone involved: actors, musicians, and all those who came to watch!
