Hundreds of comedy enthusiasts thronged the Teachers’ Hall last Saturday night for one of Ghana’s playwrights and theatre practitioners, Nii Commey’s play dubbed “Skirts and Suits.”
The play, which was sponsored by giant Mobile Telecommunication Network, (MTN) Ghana was in commemoration of this year’s International Customer Service Week.
The highly acclaimed comedy show was organised by storytelling hub Handwriting Communications, an indigenous storytelling firm based in Accra and dedicated to using experiential storytelling tools for communication, education, and entertainment.
The play which touched on the traits of females and ego of men also focused primarily on what happens in various organisations in regard to customer service.
The “Skirts and Suits” drama was made up of exciting characters occupying the roles of customers, employers, and the entire workforce who interface with the organisation.
Nii Commey Handwriting has over the years, plopped the seats of theatre lovers with his timeless and award winning plays such as “Romantic Nonsense”, “My Name is Romance,” and “where two or more women are gathered.”
Meanwhile in an interview with the Ghanaian Times after the show, some patrons commended organisers for the creative way in which the drama was presented.
They said the story line and actors were impeccable, adding that they could not wait for the next entertaining piece from Nii Commey.
Andrew Wilson, a level 300 Theatre Arts student of the University of Ghana Legon, indicated that he learnt a lot from the show, adding that “I love the fact that this story clearly exposes the good, the bad, and all the negativity that happens in most corporate environments, the available opportunities, temptations, power, position, and romance,” he added.
Rosemary Appiah, a receptionist, stated that she enjoyed the show because of the humour and outfit of the actors, adding that occasionally patronising such events was very necessary for stress management because “laughter is medicine.”
