Sierra Theatre Productions honoring Sierra Leones 50th independence

The world watched as Sierra Theatre Productions (STP) started their journey from a group of five people who believed in one Director – to a diversely enriched entourage of talent, riveting audiences into bursts of laughter, awe, and amazement as they spewed forth with multiple displays of drama evolving around the culture of Sierra Leone and the values of life.  Sierra Theatre now joins hands with the Embassy of Sierra Leone and the 50th Independence Planning Committee to showcase one of Sierra Leone’s historic plays. “Let Me Die Alone” – depicting tradition, the culture of tribes in Sierra Leone, and the life of a woman who rose up above local tradition to be an icon among women.  The 37th wife of a great Mende chief who was granted the opportunity to step into her husband’s shoes … faced with doubts, fears, and suspicions.


David Vandy

The play was written by one of Sierra Leone’s greatest playwrights, the lake Kolosa John Kargbo and directed by David Vandy, a man who wears many hats, he chairs the 50th Independence Planning Committee and he is the host of Voice of America’s international show, “The African Beat.”  The play, “Let Me Die Alone,” will be performed at the prestigious Montgomery College Performing Arts Center in Silver Spring, MD, USA on Friday June 3rd, 2011, from 7 pm to 11 pm.

STP is the first Sierra Leonean Theatre group in the United States to perform at the John F Kennedy Center and the Smithsonian Museum of Washington DC.  Sierra Theatre is once again set to give another resounding performance with “Let Me Die Alone,” a play depicting the life and times of the powerful Sierra Leonean female chief “Madam Yoko,” who will be played by talented actress and highly acclaimed Sierra Leonean gospel singer, Giileh.  The play will also be featuring the original “KEHKEH LAMOI” acted by Donald Nat-George (DAN DOGO).  The cast of the play will include theatrical icons such as Osman Kamara of Amolat Drama Company, Muriel Yannie of the Original Gbakanda Tiata, Victor Tarmoh, Abdul Kargbo, Ibrahim Conteh, Antonia Akpan, and more.

The assemble of talent is truly a commendable moment in recognition of the 50th Independence Anniversary of Sierra Leone.
