It’s a pain when a promise gets retracted. I received the news only days after Ethiopian Television announced that my play, Something Dark, would be performed in Addis in September that the British Council, who’ve been in negotiations with my creative producer, have cancelled.
But it’s incumbent on me to apologize to all those who were expecting to see my play in Addis in September. It may seem that one door opens as another closes but after a momentous visit to Ethiopia in March organised by The British Council I am still reeling at the cancellation. I’ll be performing in Nairobi, Kenya in September. The information will be in the sidebar at http://www. lemnsissay.com on September 1st. Nairobi is less than two hours from Addis.
