Speaking to journalist in Accra, the playwright and producer, Latif Abubakar promised patrons of spiced-up performances of plays and entreated all to attend with families and friends. To him, happiness is a God given right that all must seek to embrace.

“That’s precisely the mission of Globe Productions, to keep touching lives and making people happy. To help them appreciate life by distressing themselves from the exigencies of the times”

The play tells a story of two couples who set off on a long journey in an aro-glass. One for their marriage and the other on their way for a divorce, all happening in some few hours, this becomes a dooms day event when their vehicle gets stack in the middle of a road. What then becomes of their fate?

Abandoned and lost, the ensuing events expose their characteristics and objectives in the play. The play seeks to advocate a road safety campaign and has a theme ‘’ There is always light, no matter the situation” which lays credence to the saying “In thy light we shall see light”.
