TROTRO – Presented by Royall Legacy

This play unveils the frustrations and disappointments the majority of passengers go through on a daily basis as they commute between their homes and various destinations. An ordinary 15-minute trip from LA to Accra Central (very busy business central locations in Ghana) ends up stretching into a two-hour, side-splitting face-off between a drunken driver and his foul-mouthed ‘mate’ on one side, and a group of vociferous, no-nonsense, highly charged passengers on the other.

Also, ‘Trotro’ captures and brings to light how some of our heavily flawed social structures are responsible for putting the Ghanaian populace in that state of mind of having to constantly debate over who is more important than the other and why.

‘Tro-tro’ offers us a chance to laugh at ourselves while critically looking at important issues such as flouting of traffic regulations, bribery and corruption, and a lack of tolerance—a crucial societal challenge within the African fraternity and society in general.

This Sackey Sowah play, directed by Stampley Asamoah-Ampofo, touches on a very relatable subject that stares us in the face on a daily basis but is most often unnoticed.
